Click the Export LinkedIn Connections link.

Click the Export LinkedIn Connections link, but first, sync your email account(s) with your LinkedIn account. In the above example, I've synced LinkedIn with my Google/Gmail and Yahoo! accounts.

  1. Thanks for sharing Kathy. Yes people do search LinkedIn for their ideal prospects and send connection requests. As soon as they connected they get access to their email address. As you said they will export these emails and start sending emails. But Kathy in case if the prospect didn't accept the request LinkedIn won't share there email and phone number.

    So we at eGrabber developed a tool called eMail-Prospector which gives the email and phone number of anyone on LinkedIn, Just type in their Name and Company and this tool gets the hard to find email address by doing some advanced search in the Internet.
