Using xconfirm to display motd?

I would like to use xconfirm to display either the message of the day, or some other message file that I create.  The problem I have is where to put it.  The users on my system (SGI O2 with Irix 6.5) use exclusively csh.  I would like to know where I can put the xconfirm command so that they get the message only once, disregarding the number of shells they might have open.  I tried putting it in Xsession which didn't work, but I don't know why.

if your system uses CDE (Common Desktop Environment), you could append the command at $HOME/.dtprofile.
It will get executed only once at login time.
Beware of executing the command in background.

Example: xconfirm <inputfile &
