LinkedIn -- Reducing incoming emails

LinkedIn sends several emails per week to induce you to visit the website. You can quickly limit the spam and still get the ones you want.

For each type of email, there is a checkbox somewhere in the dozens of confusing 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
https://www.linkedin.com/anet?dispSortAnets
-- which lists all the groups that you are a member of. Check the settings for each group.

a. The email address in the window is probably whatever the primary email was on your account at the time you joined that particular group -- which may be a former personal or work address. For some reason, LinkedIn does not simply track your current primary address,

b. To keep up with the group, check all the boxes.

c. 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 all the way at the end of the email.
