Currently the Envelope from is apache_user@mydomain.com.
All emails sent from this website use the From address of contact@mydomain.com.

Should I change the Envelope send address to match the From address? Why?

You should change to an email address which is read by someone, preferably by sysadmin/postmaster. This is because the bounces will be sent back to that address.
Usually apache_user@domain.com doesn't even exists.
Can match the From address.

IMHO it reduces a little chances of being hit by anti-spam filters.
