You both have to use the same software I think at each end. I could be wrong. And think you have to use something like Skyp to connect. There are different ways of doing it

If you have Skype (or similar) you can converse with each other and see each other eg video call.
You should also be able to capture video and stills and then send them as attachments but video will be large files. The Notebook should have software for the webcam.

Yes, Skype is the favorite for webcamming. However, as Woolwell says, there will be software loaded on your netbook which will allow you to take a picture of yourself (or video) and then email it. Have a look in All Programmes - it should be there.

In the software for your Webcam you will have an option like "Take a video snapshot" - this then becomes a still picture file that can be saved and (as above) sent as an attachment.

You will not actually lose the address,I still have my first email address from when I was with AOL.
But if you want to change your email address here just login then click on 'My Profile' top right next to My Postings and you then can your change email address.

You will need to create a new Account as I don't think you will be able to log in. It may let you in as I cannot see it checking your mail address each time. So you can change as above, if it does
