    It doesn't use the yahoo mail server

    PHP Code:
    mail("email@to.someone","Subject","Email body","From: myemail@hotmail.com"); 
    Notice the last bit myemail@hotmail.com, that's how it's basically done in these forums

    If you get cd's with redhat, there might be an smtp server available on one of them

    You cant, unless you are using that server.

    if you say you are coming from something@example.com your headers will still be intact allowing people to trace you to your server
