How can I send automated InMails?
InMails are messages sent directly to a LinkedIn person you are not connected to. InMails are widely used by recruiters who cannot use invitations to connect with potential candidates. It can also be used by other users to build a relationship.
In order to use InMail, you have to upgrade to a Premium LinkedIn account and you will receive a specific number of free InMail credits based on your subscription type (InMails per month column):
Note: you can accumulate InMail credits from month to month, but they will expire after 90 days (Maximum Credits column in the picture).
You also can buy InMails from LinkedIn.
