Chapter 16: Using Windows Mail, Calendars, and Contacts
Getting Started with Windows Meeting Space
Windows Meeting Space uses the concept of sessions to define the virtual space in
which you hold your online gathering. To control entry into a Windows Meeting
Space session, each session has a session name and a session password. You must
know the session name and the session password to join a session.
The People Near Me feature is used to control session visibility. Typically, users with
computers on the same network are considered to be nearby and are listed in the
People Near Me window. The default new session options allow people who are
nearby to see collaboration sessions. Users can then join a nearby meeting if they
know the session password.
You can start and configure Windows Meeting Space for first use by following these
1. Click Start, click All Programs, and then click Windows Meeting Space.
2. In the Windows Meeting Space Setup dialog box, click “Yes, continue setting up
Windows Meeting Space” to allow automatic configuration to continue.
