I'm on a funny email server too, it keeps overwriting my email header "from
field". I have a workaround that might work for you too. Here's part of my
.gitconfig:

[user]
        name = Tudor Ambarus
        email = tudor.ambarus@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
[sendemail]
        from = Tudor X Ambarus <tudor.ambarus@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Because my [sendemail] from field is different than my [user] name and email,
git send-email will add in the body of the patch the [user] name and email:

From: Tudor Ambarus <tudor.ambarus@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

When the patch is applied, it takes the author name from the patch body. Even if
the server overwrites the from field from the header, it will be ignored.

Let me know if this works for you.
