Command to send an instant message with resulting instant message window

Start an instant messaging session.

Sending an instant message in Communicator 2007 is really easy. Double-click a name in the Contact List, type your message, and press ENTER. That's it.

To send an instant message to a group, right-click the group name and then click Send an Instant Message. Type your message, press ENTER, and all group members will receive it.

Note     Right-click works for single contacts, too.

To send an instant message to several contacts who are not in a group, here's how you start:

  1. Select the contacts while holding down the CTRL key.
  2. Right-click a selected contact, and then click Send an Instant Message. You can guess the rest.

Answers to your instant messages will appear below your sent messages.
