MSG.EXE (User) Does not exist or is disconnected

By ang340 ·
When i try to use MSG (in Vista - Equivalent of NET SEND)

I receive the following error message

"(user) does not exist or is disconnected"

This utility is fairly vital in our business. It did work for 1 day & now fails with this error message. (although i can send MYSELF a message whilst logged on)

I know about the 3rd party tools BUT would prefer a solution to the MSG.exe facility in Vista.

Any ideas please.
