How can I create an anonymous mail-in form?

I need to create an anonymous mail-in form; however, the From field is always updated at the time the document is mailed. I am creating the document using LotusScript and sending with the NotesDocument send method. I've tried not adding a From field in my script and setting the value of the From field; however, Notes always updates it with the user's name when it is sent.

Is there any way to override this? I don't want to have to run an agent every time mail arrives in my mail-in database.
Did you set the form's Anonymous property to true? If you've done that, then the document, when the form is stored within the document, is supposed to keep the sender/creator anonymous. I know of no other way, from the document, to tell the router to not put in the sender's name.
