Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Use the NET SEND command.

Type NET SEND without any parameters to get some help on how to use it.

The Messenger service needs to be running.

    NET SEND is hardcoded into XP, it does not require third party software. The syntax: net send COMPUTERNAME "message" For example: net send ALPHA "Please restart Outlook. wjs 08.07.09" To start the messenger service, which is required: Start>Run>services.msc. Find "Messenger" and start it. Hope this helps! -Schmidtw

    The Messenger service can also be started from the command prompt with the following command:
    net start Messenger
