Finding user logged-on to a Windows 2000 domain

Is it possible through WMI or ADSI calls to "find" a user that is logged-on to a Windows domain (Windows 2000 servers)?

I would like to find out if another person on my team is on the network, and even better find their IP address in order to send them a message.  Somehow basic Windows "Net Send ..." figures this out.  I'd like to do the same so far as resolution goes, but send the messages directly P2P via an application PopMessenger.

Hi
As far as I'm aware this is difficult via WMI (although hang on to see if anyone else has done it)
The utility below is freeware, but apparently it can search a network for a username and tell you if they are logged on,
