Opening a SharePoint Workspace message

When you receive a member message, an alert displays above the taskbar icon in the Windows notification area. To open the message, click the alert:

Member message alert

To delete the message without opening it, right-click the alert and then click Delete.

Redisplaying a message alert

Message alerts disappear after a few seconds, but an envelope image blinks above the taskbar icon to inform you that you have an unread message.

To redisplay the message alert, point at the blinking envelope icon.
