Reducing LinkedIn Emails
How to reduce the number of unwanted emails from LinkedIn.
There are many different types of email sent by LinkedIn -- each from a different LinkedIn department trying to sell you something or get you to visit the LinkedIn website.
(Note that marking a message as spam in your email reader does not unsubscribe you from any source of emails -- including LinkedIn.)
For each type of email, there is a checkbox somewhere in the dozens of account settings here: https://www.linkedin.com/settings/summary
However, we recommend following this procedure to control your email settings:
1. For emails from LinkedIn groups -- such as the HPAA's "HP
Connections" group -- go to
a. "Send me an email for each new conversation" currently has no effect.
b. "Send me a digest of all activity in this group" causes a random subset of posts to be included in an single email every week or so. Does not include all activity.
c. "Allow the group admins to send me an email" controls the [New announcement] emails.
d. Remember to "Save Changes." <smile>
2. For the many other types of email, it is easier to handle each kind as it comes in. Scroll down past the content and click the "Unsubscribe" link in tiny, faint blue type.
