Try this one
NET SEND /DOMAIN:NAME
NOTE: With NET SEND * and NET SEND /DOMAIN:NAME, only users on the local subnet that belong to the specified domain, receives the message.

Unfortunatly as of Windows XP SP2 the "net send" or "Messenger Service" has been disabled by default to prevent these kind of messages. You can go to run type "services.msc" on each machine you want to send the message to, switch the "messenger" service to automatic startup. also in your commmand :Net Send /domain:workgroup" remove the the colon and use a space.
