Setting the Reply-to and From Addresses, etc, changes the apparent origin of the message that is being sent. In a multi-domain environment, this allows a single user 'jane' to easily send mail from any domain listed in the main Console - Options | Server - Domain Aliases section, thus from:
Jane Doe < email@example.com > or John Buck < firstname.lastname@example.org >
Profiles are generally remembered from email to email, so a sender will be 'jane' or 'john' until they change.
Profile changes should be applied before starting a new email, or relpying to an email.
Remember to apply the [Save changes] button at the bottom of the page.

Note: You can use slashes (/) to nest your folders (e.g. Groups/Biz/Important)
