I MAY also suggest you use 'net send'. The problem? If those remote machine/s uses windows 95/98, these OSs cannot receive the message through net send! (unless using WinPopUp).

One  way is through the use of winsock. But then you might also encounter problem if those remote machines are not properly TCP/IP configured (solution here is re-install your TCP/IP in network!).

Another way is through having a VB program sitting on remote machine's system tray. Put a timer to trigger. When times come, access a database (a table with let say three fields: user, message, remark). Loop through records (selecting only with blank remark), if user is me, get message and put in on msgbox to pop-up. edit that current record and put on remark that already processed.
