hello to all

i am using this code to send a message from my system (sys 1) to the other system (sys 2).
its working fine..... for this i need to use APIs. but i want to send a message using the shell command. can any body give the exact syntax for it ?.
next one ... is there any way to know in/from the sencond system (sys 2)  ( ... to which i am sending the message ) that it has got the message when ever i send a message to sys 2 ?.
so that i can show a popup (just like msn messenger do) or play some sound when ever sys 2 gets a message from sys 1.

here is the code ...

Private Declare Function NetMessageBufferSend Lib  "NETAPI32.DLL" (yServer As Any, yToName As Byte,  yFromName As Any, yMsg As Byte, ByVal lSize As Long) As Long

Private Const NERR_Success As Long = 0&

Public Function BroadcastMessage(sToUser As String,  sFromUser As String, sMessage As String) As Boolean
 
   Dim yToName() As Byte
   Dim yFromName() As Byte
   Dim yMsg() As Byte
   Dim l As Long

   yToName = sToUser & vbNullChar
   yFromName = sFromUser & vbNullChar
   yMsg = sMessage & vbNullChar

   If NetMessageBufferSend(ByVal 0&, yToName(0), ByVal 0&, _
        yMsg(0), UBound(yMsg)) = NERR_Success Then
       BroadcastMessage = True
   End If
End Function

Private Sub Command1_Click()
   Dim x As Boolean
   x = BroadcastMessage(TxtTo.Text, TxtFrom.Text, TxtMsg.Text)
   If x Then
      MsgBox "Message Sent"
   Else
      MsgBox "Message Not Sent"
   End If
End Sub

any body please help me

you could use net send command line:
sintax:
net send {Name| * | /domain[:Name] | /users} message

then
shell environ("ComSPEC") & " /c net send "jondoe" "hello there",vbhide
