It's just using your default e-mail program defined in Windows; it's one of those options in Explorer (not IE, Windows (Folder) Explorer) to change. Change those mailto: and X-Application: Mail mimetypes to whatever browser or e-mail application you use for Yahoo-ing, The email app will take the arguments, and in the case of a browser, the uninterpreted arguments will fall to the plugins like Yahoo Toolbar to interpret, and you will be all set up.

Mechanically; of course, you are saving the video file and adding it as an attachment to e-mail. So there's more to it, in that you could have a big junk drawer full of undeleted attachments eating up HD space to clean at some point. Moreover you may wish to use some facility to encrypt the attachment, so it might be better to make your default mail program a utility of some sort, so that private keys are used by all and you are not exposing stuff beyond the intended recipients (and sometimes yourself.)

How can I set Outlook so that it's separate access for my boss and I to communicate or for me to view his calendar (mirror)? Can I do this? HOW? Please provide the printscreen pics. Not sure why, but...


1. How can I set Outlook so that it's separate access for my boss and I?
r:/ question: are you both (you and your boss) using the same computer account?, as long as you have outlook installed and if your boss and you are using different accounts you should have separate access to outlook.

2. view his calendar (mirror): usully you would need an exchange server, if you do see if this helps: sorry I have no pics but try to follow the instructions and post back with your questions:

this is assuming you have outlook 2003

In Calendar, in the Navigation Pane (Navigation Pane: The column on the left side of the Outlook window that includes panes such as Shortcuts or Mail and the shortcuts or folders within each pane. Click a folder to show the items in the folder.), click Share My Calendar.

1.

HideI don't see Share My Calendar
Share My Calendar does not appear unless you are using an Exchange Server e-mail account. What is an Exchange Server account? Also, if you have the Navigation Pane turned off or covered by the main Calendar window, you won't see it. Hide or show the Navigation Pane.
2. Do one of the following:

HideAllow anyone to access your Calendar
1. In the Name box, click Default.
2. Under Permissions, in the Permission Level list, click the permission level that you want.

For details about permission levels, see Outlook folder permissions.

You can create custom permissions by selecting the check boxes and options under Permissions.

HideSpecify the people who can access your Calendar
1. Click Add.
2. In the Add Users dialog box, in the Type Name or Select from List box, enter the name of the person whom you want to grant sharing permissions to.
3. Under Add Users, click Add, and then click OK.
4. In the Name box, click the name of the person you just added.
5. Under Permissions, in the Permission Level list, click the permission level that you want.

For details about permission levels, see Outlook folder permissions.

You can create custom permissions by selecting the check boxes and options under Permissions.

Important If you select the Private check box on a Calendar item in Microsoft Office Outlook 2003, do not grant Read permission to your Calendar folder to anyone whom you do not want to see private items. A person who is granted Read permission to access your folders could use programmatic methods or other e-mail applications to view the details in a private item.


source:
sharing a calendar in outlook

now if you don't have an exchange server you may need another tool to make this work: like officecalendar, or try to see if the instructions proposed in the following link work

good luck!

Send this to them to so they can properly setup the Audio & Video in the messenger they use.

Web Camera's have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/ )
set it up as follows:
Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
Then click on the Video Settings.
The camera, if Installed Properly, it will come up and show a video picture.
Then, on the bottom of the page click save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and hear you.

B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://www.soft32.com/download_30.HTML )
set it up as follows:
Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
Next "Calling and Devices" on the right, set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card or headphones/mike.
Next go to the Test Audio section below where you just setup the microphone & speaker and (written in blue) click on "Open the call setup assistant"
and the "Yahoo Call Setup Assistant" window will open to the left and follow the the instructions. Click on FINISH and the audio will be setup.
Next go to "Webcam" and click in the circle "Allways allow the following people to view my webcam.
Next Click on "Super Webcam" snd in the circle click "Start Super Webcam mode automatically".
Then click OK and it should work.

C. Windows Live Messenger:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en
After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on " "Show Menus." And then click on "Show the Menu Bar".
Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on " "Action."
Go to "TOOLS" and click "Audio and Video Setting" and follow the instructions.
NOTE: Your audio and video should work. Enjoy.
When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.

D. AIM (AOL) Messenger:
http://dashboard.aim.com/aim
On the VIM sign-in window, click on Edit.
Then click on Settings Enhanced IM.
Next click on Enhanced IM.
Then click on Audio Video.
The Audio and Video portion has drop downs so you can select the proper audio card and video camera installed in you computer.

conversation before running setup. Would you like to disconnect now? Click the Yes button.
2. The Audio and Video Tuning Wizard will appear to help you verify that your camera, speakers and microphone are working
Properly. Follow the on-screen prompts.

Friends are just seeing a black screen and hearing my voice i am try ing to send it through the e mail on aol it records fine and when i send it ti the desk top and checkit it plays but wont work thru the...


when sending video through e-mail, the e-mail client (yahoo, hotmail, etc...) must be M.A.P.I compliant. MAPI stands for messaging application programming interface. this means that the e-mail client must be set up and programmed to stream video. outlook and outlook express are the only e-mail clients that are progerammed for that type of usage. Only those e-mail clients are programmed to meet the speed the video needs to be streamed through.

How do I use the web camera without skype?


How does a webcam work?
There are two different ways to use a webcam at home — through e-mail and with instant messaging programs.

E-mail your video files
To use a webcam with e-mail, first launch the software that comes with the camera. Depending on the model, the process of e-mailing and recording your video messages may vary. Press Start or Record to begin the video message. Click Stop and then preview the video. You can then click E-mail or Send, which will automatically open your default e-mail program (Outlook 2007).

When sending a video e-mail, the longer the video message recorded, the bigger the attachment will be, so make sure the recipient’s computer can handle the size. The recipient of the e-mail does not need special software to see your video message; he or she simply chooses to open the attachment and the mini-movie will play.

How do i capture a pic and send it in my webbcam


Usually you should have a button on top of webcam. Pressing it, will make pictures. Save the pictures in folder and you can send via email

If you don't have the button, you must open the application provided with the webcam. (e. g. Start - programs - your webcam name). In that application you must have option Capture. Clicking on it, it will make pictures.

You can use the mail (Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail) attaching the picture

- won;t email pictures


it may be that the software isn't correctly intergrated with your email programme, you may have to look in settings to see if there are any options for mail programmes. Failing that uninstal the software and reinstall again and see if that cures it, or the other option is to copy the pic that it takes assumably saving it in my pics after it has done so and pasting it into your email programme. If you only send and receive mail through your providers web site, that is why it wont work as you have to use outlook express outlook or another email programme.
