Change "from" email settings to a specific person in an SPD workflow not SharePoint administrator.

In the SPD workflow I need to set the from email address to something other than the default of the administrator. The email popup does not have an option to do so. I assume there is some code that could do this. I do not want to change it for the site collection using Central Admin. I want to be able to do this for various workflows.
Thanks

All the emails sent from workflows will all be from the address for the site since they are all sent be the site and not a user. Most environments also don't support spoofing the from address.

It is a little strange that Microsft has a CRM product that supports spoofing the from address, but it does not support this in SharePoint. The ideal way would be to assign an email address of the owner of  a subsite instead of a site collection. That way a workflow could default to the email address from subsite owner. Maybe this will be addressed sometime in the future.

Just a general statement of the shortcomings of the SharePoint product, however accurate it still did not solve my issue.
