Do you want to make a change to your email notification settings on LinkedIn?

Maybe you are not getting email when a new message is received and you would like to enable those notification emails?

First, click your profile picture in the top right of the screen, and then click the Manage link next to Privacy and Settings:

Next, you should be prompted to confirm your password. This is expected and it's OK to type in your password.

After typing in your password, click the Communications tab and then click "set the frequency of emails":

Last, if you want to receive private message notifications, click Messages from other members, and then set Messages from Connections to Individual Email:
