Quick Tips: Quick Tips: Automatically accept attachments in ICQ

1:13 /

Make it easier to share files with your friends when using the popular chat program ICQ!

[ Music ] ^M00:00:01 >> Hi there, I'm Veronica Belmont, associate editor for CNet.com. On this edition of Quick Tips, I'm going to show you how to auto accept attachments from specific contacts in the chat program ICQ. Let's go to the options menu and click on message and files under customization on the left. That will open up the panel with the heading of files near the bottom. And the first choice lets you auto accept files from all of your contacts. But next to that is a cent per contact option and clicking on that brings up a window where you can move your contacts manually from the don't auto accept columns to the auto accept column. When you're done doing that, hit okay. When an attachment arrives, a message will pop up saying that a file has been received and offers a choice of opening, browsing, or saving as. I think it's important to be careful with this feature, otherwise somebody who knew you don't know very well could easily affect your system with virus or other malware. Thanks for watching quick tips. For more, head over to CNet TV.com. I'm Veronica Belmont, see you next time. ^M00:01:01 [ Music ]
