One thing I forgot, the Messenger Service must be running for the Net Send command to work.

1. Right click "My Computer"
2. Select Manage
3. Click Services and Applications
4. Click Services
5. Find and right click on Messenger
6. Select properties
7. Where it says Startup Type, select Automatic from the dropdown box.
8. Click Apply
9. Click Start
10. Click OK

Or go to command prompt (start -> run 'cmd') and type net start messenger.

Here's a batch file I use (See answer 2). Just save the text between the *s below into a .bat file and put a shortcut on your desktop.

We use Outlook 2000 for email and you can get a user's logon name (network alias) by checking the properties of names in the adressbook. Also, if you know the computername you can send it there as well. I like using the Alias since the message is routed to that person whereever they are logged in from and if they're not logged on it goes nowhere.

Good luck,
Krompton

Net send %user% %msg%
