I have a form that I have one combo box that is populated with several user names, a multiline text box for messages to be typed and a command button labled "send" to send the message.

I want to be able to utilize the net send feature via code for a simple way to communicate a quick message to a user on my network.

Can anyone give me some sample code to get started... ??
