Do you want to disable php scripts from sending mail, or just not have 
them send mail with www-data as sender address?
What you can also do, is adjust the sendmail path in the php.ini config or 
in the apache config (e.g. in a vhost definition) :

php_admin_value sendmail_path '/usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i -f realaddress at domain'

Or, of course, if you don't want it to send mail, tell it to use another 
program for sending mail, or disable the mail functions using the 
appropriate php configuration directives.

Furthermore, you could use exim rewrite rules to translate 
www-data at hostname to realaddress at realdomein on the fly.
