How to Set Your LinkedIn E-mail Notifications
LinkedIn can notify you when network activity occurs. The true power of staying connected, however, is having LinkedIn automatically contact you with the information you need to stay informed. By setting your E-mail Notifications, LinkedIn can keep you in formed in the easiest way; straight to your inbox.
Clicking the Settings link takes you to the Account & Settings page, which contains information about your account and your LinkedIn settings. Scroll down to the Settings section. This is your hub for controlling how you interact with LinkedIn and how the site will communicate with you.
Start setting preferences in the Email Notifications section by deciding when LinkedIn should send you an e-mail to your e-mail account on file with LinkedIn:
On the Account & Settings page, click the Receiving Messages link in the Email Notifications section.
You’re taken to the Receiving Messages page.
Review the list of options and decide how you want to receive your e-mails. Select the radio button in one of the columns:
Individual Email: As soon as something occurs in a given category, like Introductions, Invitations, or Job Notifications, LinkedIn sends you an e-mail with that one item in the e-mail.
Daily Digest Email or Weekly Digest Email: Instead of individual e-mails, LinkedIn groups all the activities in a given category and sends you one e-mail in a digest format, with a summary at the top of the e-mail and the detailed activities below the summary. Note that Daily Digests are for Group updates, while Weekly Digests are available for General and Group updates.
No Email: Turn off e-mail notification. You can read the message, though, when logged in to the LinkedIn site.
Select the LinkedIn May Send Me Marketing Messages about New Products, Features and Tips check box to sign up for a monthly newsletter from LinkedIn.
Of course these are optional.
Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the Save Changes button.
You return to the Account & Settings page.
