Sending instant messages
To send an instant message (IM) to someone on your Messenger List:
- Double-click the contact's name on your Messenger List. This will automatically open an IM window.
To send an IM to someone not on your Messenger List:
- Click the exclamation point icon at the bottom of the Messenger window.
- Type the Yahoo! ID of the person in the Send to field.
You can also send IMs from the Conversation menu by selecting New Conversation and entering a Yahoo! ID.
If you send an IM to someone who is offline (a gray face next to the name), the message will be saved in that person's offline message box. The person can see your message the next time they are online.
