Cool Tip of the Day 56: Settings

In Microsoft® Office Communicator for Java, the settings page has three tabs: General, Calling via work, and PIN lock. On the General tab you can set options for: New IM Alerts, Turn on Logging, Show call warnings. On the Calling via Work tab you set your call back number.

  2. Scroll to check box for New IM Alert.
  3. Choose Select to select or clear the check box.
