  • Hi –
    How can I delete/edit the Public Profile email address at my LinkedIn posting page?
    It currently shows an outdated email address that I cannot figure out how to change.
    Thanks for your help.

    • Hi Gene, the first thing I’d do is go to “settings” (, then “email addresses”; what is shown there? I’ll bet that you have several, and the unwanted email is set to the “primary” email. You cannot delete a primary email when it is set to primary. What you can do is change the primary to your desired email address, which should then be shown on your public profile. Then you can delete the old, unwanted email.

      A possible confounding wrinkle is, what email address do you use to log in? If your browser logs you in automatically, that could make it harder to get rid of that email. In that case, under settings, change your login before you do the steps I suggested above.

      Please let me know if this works.
