|If you have
a running ICQ client you can Chat Me, ICQ-Me and/or
Me to your contact list. Netscape Users: If you are prompted
to Pick App or Save File, select Pick App and browse
to the location of your ICQ.EXE file (usually in C:\Program Files\ICQ\ICQ.EXE).
Explorer Users: If you are prompted to Open or Save As
If you don't have an ICQ client you can press the Page Me button to send me an ICQ message through my Personal Communication Center, the Zoom Me button to view my ICQ Whitepages details and the EmailNotify Me button to send me an e-mail and notify me by ICQ. If I am online, the message will popup on my screen, if I am offline it will be stored and forwarded to me as soon as I connect to the internet. Installing the ICQ client will enable you to know if your peers are online and communicate directly with them.
