Did you know that there is a way to see the email address of anyone who communicates with you on LinkedIn? To do this, you must enable email notifications so you receive a message when you are contacted by another LinkedIn user.
Below is an example of an email notification I received after a LinkedIn user communicated with me:
Steps to identify the email address of the sender
1. Open the email in outlook and go to the file tab:
2. Click on ‘properties’ and you will see the popup below:
3. Hidden in the “Internet headers” section is the users real email address.
Reminder: This trick works for any contact or reply on Linkedin as long as you’re receiving notifications in your outlook email address.
Editor’s note: This tip also works in Apple Mail. Simply open the message, select ‘view’ in the menu bar, select ‘message’, then select ‘default headers’ to view the same information.
After posting this article, we received this note on Facebook regarding Gmail.
