I tried to syntax for specifying the e-mail is coming from a user but the system when I do a password reset only, just sends from
the default

I am suspecting that the reset pwd feature is sending email from somewhere else
Please advise

Email::setAdminEmail(string $adminemail

You forget to mention whether you are on 3.0 or 2.4? Pretty sure if you use Email::setAdminEmail("") it should use that email address. If you need to change this email address you can in 3.0 via the new Injector API -
