Send an instant message

You can send an instant message to someone regardless of whether he or she is in your Contact List. You cannot, however, send an instant message to someone who you have blocked.

To send a message to someone who is on your Contact List

  1. In the Contact List, click the name of the person to whom you want to send an instant message, and then click Actions.

  2. Click Send Instant Message > Send.

  3. Enter your message, and then either click Send or press ENTER.

To send a message to someone who is not on your Contact List

  1. Click Menu > Find/Add Someone.

  2. Click Find by display name, and then click one of the listed search options.

  3. Enter the first name, last name, e-mail address, or display name of the person for whom you are searching, and then click Find.

  4. In Search Results, click the name of the person that you want to contact, and then click Select.

  5. Click Send Instant Message.

  6. Enter your message, and then either click Send or press ENTER.

To send a message to a group on your Contact List

  • In the Contact List, click the group name that includes all the people to whom you want to send an instant message, and then click Send IM.

    Notes: 

    • Because Communicator Mobile limits a conversation to 101 participants, including yourself, you cannot send a message to a group that contains more than 100 contacts.

    • You cannot send a message to a group that contains no users.

    • You cannot send a message to a default group, such as Other Contacts or All Contacts.
