I am a bit confused about this wording on the help doc on "Daily Allocations for Email Alerts" (https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=workflow_limits_email.htm&type=5):
Each org can send single emails to a maximum of 5,000 external email addresses per day based on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). (...) For orgs created in Spring ’19 and later, the daily limit is also enforced for email alerts, simple email actions, Send Email actions in flows, and REST API.
What exactly are the "email alerts" listed in the above sentence? I am only aware of the Workflow Action kind of Email Alerts, but those are supposed to count against Daily Workflow Email Allocation as noted above in the same help doc. As a matter of fact, emails sent using Workflow Alerts do get registered as Daily Workflow Emails from my testing. Could someone help clarifying this?
Edit: To make my question clearer, I am confused about the apparent contradicting statements regarding Email Alerts daily limit. At the top of the help page I linked, Email Alerts limit is stated to be
1,000 per standard Salesforce license per org...The overall org allocation is 2,000,000. But below, in the paragraph regarding Single Emails limit (5000 per day per org), Email Alerts are mentioned to count against "the daily limit", which I assume to be the Single Emails one in this context.
