Net Send 2 Questions

Is there a GUI for Net Send *  ?

I get tired of going to the comand prompt to send a mesg to all my users  (small office)

ALSO  all my clinets are running windows XP /w SP2

I have 2 that can SEND Net Send messages but will not receive.
I have  Messenger, Workstation,  RPC, and Plug and Play services running.  What else can keep the messenger box from popping up?

Feel stuiped.  DVation had it right.  I forgo to turn off the fire wall on those 2 pc's when we updated.   ALL the others got done.... I guess I was looking for something HARDER and didn't check the simple stuff first.
