How can I send a message to all users on a workgroup, not a domain. I need to throw this in a task schedular to happen at a certain time of the day. I tried net send /DOMAIN:WORKGROUP "To all users" does not seem to work.

Stupid messenger service was disabled. I bet if I go and turn the service on the workstation to enabled, automatic then they will get the messages.

Found that just about all machines have the messenger service disabled by default, not sure why some are and are not. Anyway your syntax is correct so points awarded.

I could had  sworn that I read a topic about a year ago that it was enabled by default, telling people to turn it off. The article was regarding people sending spam popups via the messenger service.
