Defaulting a GMail from Alias instead of a username with PEAR mail & PHP

As part of a site I've set the from field as an e-mail alias/nickname attached to a gmail apps account (gmail on a domain name address).
I've got the example here working on my site but it exposes the main account rather than the alias.

$from = ""
$username = ""

For some reason it doesn't default the e-mail from field as the $from variable to an e-mail sent to someone, it sends the $username instead...

Any ideas on how to fix this or is it something stuck with gmail / Google Apps?
