Setting From Address while sending email

Hello Everyone,

How do we set From Address while sending email using messaging.SingleEmailMessage. I have got a solution which uses setOrgWideEmailAddressId to set from address,
OrgWideEmailAddress[] owea = [select Id from OrgWideEmailAddress where Address = 'doNotReply@blahblah.com']; Messaging.SingleEmailMessage mail = new Messaging.SingleEmailMessage(); if ( owea.size() > 0 ) { mail.setOrgWideEmailAddressId(owea.get(0).Id); }


But I want to query the record ( say the contact who logged in ) and set that as From Address.

Can Anyone help me out with this?

I think you can able to do it like this 

 
OrgWideEmailAddress[] owea = [select Id from OrgWideEmailAddress where Address = 'doNotReply@blahblah.com']; 


Contact c = new COntact() ;
c.LastName = UserInfo.getLastName() ;
// add all fields

insert c ; 
Messaging.SingleEmailMessage mail = new Messaging.SingleEmailMessage();
 if ( owea.size() > 0 ) {
 mail.setOrgWideEmailAddressId(owea.get(0).Id);
 }
 
 // at the end 
 
 delete c ;

I have got a solution for it. I will Query the logged in user and assign it to Display Name. That is what I actually wanted.

The problem is if you query the contains against to the user if contact is not preset you will get list has no rows to assign object.
