Changing profile pic for a Google domain-level alias

My 'Google for Business' apps domain is and in this setup is set up at the alias. So if I create an email [email protected], the other alias email is created automatically (I cannot disable it), which means the following emails are essentially the same:

[email protected] (I created this in Google Apps admin) [email protected] (This is automatically in place)

The thing is, I need to often send email from

When I login to gmail I have to use [email protected] as the user ID because that's the main account. My profile pic works fine for this one. But when I then send email as [email protected], I cannot see the profile pic.

Where can I set up the profile pic for an alias address that’s at a domain level — in google admin there’s no place to do this.

(Aliases should use the same profile pic anyway, by default. This is a silly and tedious setting from google.)

Thanks for any pointers.
