Wouldn’t it be great to learn a bit more about the people you’re emailing with every day so you can be more productive? Starting today, you can. When you sync your LinkedIn and Yahoo Mail accounts, you’ll have direct access to helpful information about your colleagues or new partners and customers who are emailing you – you’ll see their LinkedIn profile photo, company and job title – all from right within Yahoo Mail.
Through our partnership and collaboration with Yahoo, we’re excited to bring the power of LinkedIn right where you need it, when you need it, without ever leaving your inbox.
Here’s how to get started:
- Connect your Yahoo Mail and LinkedIn accounts by clicking on the gear in the top right corner of Yahoo Mail from your browser
- Next, select Settings and then Accounts, and click “Connect” next to LinkedIn
- Whenever you mouse over a Yahoo contact’s name in an email, you’ll see the contact’s LinkedIn profile photo, company and title information
- If you want to see their full LinkedIn profile, click on the LinkedIn icon on the contact card
This new integration is starting to ramp to Yahoo Mail users in the US and on desktop only for now. Let us know what you think and we look forward to bringing even more ways for you to stay connected to your professional world.
