Chapter 8. Outlook Settings to Change > Turning Instant Messaging On and Off

Turning Instant Messaging On and Off

Outlook 2003 provides some integration with Microsoft Windows Messenger, which is the chat and conferencing program included with Windows 2000 and later versions of Windows. For example, Outlook can show you the online/offline status of your Windows Messenger contacts in the Inbox when you click a message from a contact listed in your Messenger contacts. Outlook can also display a Person Names smart tag in certain forms, which helps you quickly perform certain messaging-related actions for the contact, such as starting a chat session.

You can find the options that enable/disable these two features in the Person Names group on the Other tab of the Options dialog box (which you access by choosing Tools, Options).
