How can I capture NT messenger service messages

I would like to capture the messages, which are coming from the WindowsNT network via messenger service in my C++ Builder application at the client side. I mean that my workstation it's a receiver. Instead of showing the particular message in the NT messagebox, I would like to capture this message, and show it in my application.
Thanks!

That's going to be tough.  It's bundled in so tightly with the OS.  What I'd suggest looking into is to check in your NT security auditing and see if you can log the net messages you get.  
First part would monitor the event log looking only for the reception of the net sends.  then do what you want with 'em.

now if you can audit them that shouldn't be bad at all.  THe problem comes if you're saying that you don't want the window to be shown to the user at all.  You'd have to constantly monitor all the open windows and see if it is a message window and accept it.  I don't even know how you'd easily be able to do that besides maybe launching a windows scripting file once you see one of those pop up.  That won't be an easy chore at all though.  

If they are auditable events, then the first part should be fairly easy...but you will still get the window popping up.

with a grade C for timberbt you are suppost to give an explanation why you gave that grade. You never asked back and never gave any feedback to the experts here. Usually a question answered deserves an "A" grade.
