[IMPORTANT!!! READ ALL OF THIS DOCUMENT]
To Our Customers,
Thank you for your interest in While Your Were Out and Caliente
International. Our name says it all: We're HOT! To prove it, you've just
installed While You Were Out 3.0(WYWO), the Windows 3.0/3.1 office messaging
Inspired by the universal telephone message note, you already know how to
use WYWO. Installed on a MS DOS 3.1 or higher compatible network, users can
send and receive messages which look just like their familiar phone
messages. They're password protected and encrypted for privacy. WYWO
notifies you of new messages. Messages are organized into New and Old
message lists. Once read, new messages are automatically saved to the old
message list. The contents of a message can be saved either to a
printer, file, or the clipboard for pasting into another Windows 3.0
application. WYWO has extensive on-line help.

Running the WSETUP.EXE program
Upon closing this document, the install utility will automatically run
WSETUP.EXE. WSETUP.EXE is the administration program for WYWO. It is used
to set up all of the user names, user groups and message types for the WYWO
system. It is also used for clearing user's passwords should they forget
them. WSETUP creates two files called WYWO.DAT and WMSGTYPE.DAT in the
directory dedicated for the WYWO system. With WSETUP, you will be able to
add, modify or delete users, groups and message types that are in the
WYWO.DAT and WMSGTYPE.DAT files of the WYWO directory. To toggle between
User Name and Message Type modes click on the User Names button or the
Message Types button.
To add a user, click on the New button and fill in the name of the new user.
Click on OK to enter the name into the system. You can modify the user's
name or clear the user's password by either clicking on the Modify button
after clicking on the user to be modified, or just double-click on the user
name itself. You can then change the user's name or clear the user's
password. To delete a user, select the users name and click on the Delete
button. Click on the Save button when all users have been added, or click
on Cancel to ignore any new changes.
Once users are defined, you can organize them into logical groups to
represent departments, floors, workgroups, etc. Groups are identified in
the user name list by square brackets, ex: [Everyone]. By default all
users belong to the Everyone Group, allowing users to send and receive
messages to everyone installed in WYWO. Users have the option of setting a
default user group by clicking the Options button in WYWO on their
Message Types can be added, modified, and deleted in the same manner as the
User Names. You are now ready to run WYWO.
After installing WYWO on your network, make sure the WYWO directory has
Shareable Read rights while sub-directories have Shareable Read/Write rights
for everyone using WYWO.
Running the WYWO.EXE program
WYWO.EXE is the main WYWO program for sending and retrieving WYWO messages.
Once the WYWO sheet is on the screen you are ready to send and receive
To activate WYWO, simply double click the WYWO icon either on the Windows
desktop or Program Manager. The WYWO icon looks like a pink While You Were
With version 3.0, WYWO utilizes both mouse buttons. The left button
operates as it normally would in any Windows application. It selects
things: buttons, fields, etc. Clicking the right mouse button will pop-up
a menu displaying functionality associated certain objects within a WYWO
For example, click the right button over the To field when reading a
message and WYWO will display the Forward menu. Select Forward item with
the left button, WYWO allows you to select the name of another person to
send the message. Hit the Enter key and the message is sent.
Likewise, click the WYWO sheet itself, a menu with functions associated with
an entire message is displayed.
By clicking the Help button, you can get help on using any of WYWO's
functions. This is the on-line manual.
Version 3.0 now has on Options screen which is available by clicking the
Options button from the message create sheet of WYWO. From this screen you
can set the following:
Default user: The person normally using a particular workstation.
Default user group: Group the default user will normally send and
New message notification time: How often WYWO will search for new
message or not at all.
Notification window handling: When notified of new messages, should
the user be required to respond to
the notification dialog window or let
the window stay in the background.
Message save options: When saving a message to the printer, file,
or clipboard, save the message field
identifiers such as To, From, Date, etc. with
the message or not.
If you would like WYWO to be loaded each time you run windows so it always
checks for incoming messages, add WYWO.EXE to the Load= line of the WIN.INI
To specify a specific default username when running WYWO, pass the name
on the command line for the WYWO icon or from the Program Manager. This
name will override the default user name specified in the Options screen.
Running the WMONITOR.EXE Program
WMONITOR.EXE acts as a system message rack/message board similar to the
message racks used on many secretaries desks. It is great for those users
with or without a network that want to monitor all new WYWO messages that
come in at a central location. WMONITOR will check for all new messages in
the system at 30-second intervals and display the names of users with new
messages. The users can then read their messages from WMONITOR by
double-clicking on their name or selecting their name and clicking the
Read Messages button. WMONITOR can be used in two modes: One for displaying
new message names as a message board whick will show the number of new
messages as small WYWO sheets following the users name, or by displaying a
message rack with a picture of the number of WYWO sheets sitting in their
WMONITOR will only display users who belong to the group specified in the
Options screen of WYWO installed on the same workstation. To monitor other
groups, simply access WYWO and click the Options button to select another
