The organization-wide email address allows you to associate an email address to user profiles. When you assign an organization-wide email address for all the user profiles or selected user profiles, users can use the common email address while sending emails. You can set up multiple organization-wide email addresses, but you can use only one organization-wide email address to send emails. When an organization-wide email address is not set up then the logged-in user email address is used to send emails.
