Send Email from LinkedIn Profile

by @pixies


Adds a button to a profile on LinkedIn that finds user email and generates a button to send an email

How to Use

If you're tired of manually searching for someone's email address on LinkedIn and then going through the hassle of composing a new email, try this Get Email From LinkedIn mod.

This mod adds a button to every user's LinkedIn profile that, when clicked, automatically searches for that person's email address on Hunter. io and returns their email—no more opening a new tab and searching.

This mod also creates a button that opens an email draft directly from the LinkedIn profile page—no more copying and pasting between hunter, LinkedIn, and Gmail.


How to activate:

  1. Activate this mod by clicking Activate above in the top right or via this link
    PixieBrix configuration screen
  2. Select a Hunter integration, or configure a new one by adding a Hunter API key and saving the integration.
  3. Click "Activate."

Try it out:

  1. Go to a LinkedIn user's profile. Feel free to add me!
  2. Notice the Get email button appearing next to the other action items, and click it. Don't see it? Refresh the page.
