array('sendmail_path' => '/usr/bin/sudo -H -u ' . $imp['user'] . ' /usr/bin/tmda-sendmail -t');

This is more correct, but I'm not sure if will alaways give you the
correct return value.  It also requires the Horde authentication
library to be included before the configuration file, which is not
easy to do.

array('sendmail_path' => '/usr/bin/sudo -H -u ' . Auth::getAuth() . ' /usr/bin/tmda-sendmail -t');
