									                  Send and receive instant messages in Lync Web App
     During an online meeting you can use Microsoft Lync Web App communications software to
     send instant messages that are received by all the other meeting participants.


     Compose and send an instant message

     In-meeting instant messaging (IM) in Microsoft Lync Web App communications software allows
     you to send and receive instant messages to and from other participants during a Microsoft
     Lync 2010 meeting. IM serves as back-up to the main audio and visual parts of the meeting and
     helps with troubleshooting when a participant has an audio issue. For these reasons, all the
     instant messages you send and receive in Lync Web App are visible to all meeting participants.

1.             In the meeting window, click in the bottom part of the message input area, and begin
     typing.


     NOTE        If the input area isn’t visible, click the IM button at the top of the meeting window.




2.             When your message is complete, press Enter to send it to all meeting participants.
         NOTE      You cannot send images (except for emoticons) or files by using IM. Use the
         meeting attachment feature for this purpose. For instructions, see Distribute and save files
         for later viewing.

     Format your message

     Any formatting you add applies to all the text in the current message. Lync Web App does not
     support formatting individual words or phrases, or selecting the format for future messages.

     You can change the text font and color, and add bold and italics formatting.

1.             At any time while you are typing your message, click the text formatting button        .
2.          Select the formatting options that you want, and then click the message again to
     continue typing or to send it.

     Add emoticons to your message

     You can add these small images to your messages to express your feelings or add a bit of
     information.

1.          In the message you are typing, click where you want to add an emoticon, and then click
     the Select an emoticon button      .
2.          Click an emoticon to add it to the message.
     You will see the typographical equivalent of the emoticon in your message before you send it
     (for example, :( instead of  ). When you press Enter to send the message, the emoticon will
     appear in the message history pane.
     TIP     If you know the typographical equivalent of the emoticon you want to add, you can type it
     directly into your message instead of clicking the Select an emoticon button.

     View incoming instant messages

     Both outgoing and incoming messages appear in the IM history area at the top of the message
     window. The size of the characters in incoming messages is determined by the IM font size that
     is set in your Lync Web App program when the message is received. The default size is 10.

     The formatting of incoming messages in Lync Web App is determined by how the sender
     formatted the last character of his or her message.
