broadcast message on client terminals

This is more related with Windows administration than anything. I'm currently a part-time system administrator. I know there is this cool feature where you can broadcast a message to the client terminals on the network, and the message will pop up on a windows on their screen. How can I go about doing this, as sometimes I need to reboot the server and wish to notify everyone on the network? Thanks.

So if my company's domain is abcd then I can just input NET SEND /DOMAIN:abcd "message"? Is that it?

BEWARE THIS:

NET SEND HELP will pop up a message "help" on everyones screen! (very embarrassing!)
