Hello.  I have a problem.  I moved one of my users to a thin client from a workstation.  Now, she is unable to receive net send messages.  Is there somewhere that I need to let Windows Messaging know that she is now logged in to another machine and not her old one?  I need her to be able to get these messages.  Any and all help would be appreciated.  Thank you for taking the time to read my post.

Maybe the message service is turned off:
On her computer perform the following steps:
1. Right-click My Computer, and click Manage.
2. Click the plus sign next to Services and Applications, and then click Services.
3. double-click Messenger.
4. Click the General tab and select Automatic from the Startup type list, and then click Apply.
5. Under Service status, click Start, and click OK.
6. Close all windows by pressing ok.

The Windows Messaging service is turned on.  I know this because I checked using Start > Run and typing services.msc.  I restarted it for good measure.  I also tried doing a net send to another user logged in to this same terminal server.  It was received.

Can she send messages though? and can she send a message to herself?
Is there any firewall enabled?

If she has a firewall running, make sure that you have "File and Printer Sharing" checked as a Firewall Exception on her computer.

We do have a firewall, but not internally.  Even so, the windows messaging service is unrestricted.  She is not able to send a net send message to herself.  I am able to log on to her server and send a message to myself, however.  It is only her account that is having this problem.

She is able to send net send messages to me without a problem.  The issue seems to be her and only her receiving, not sending.

Too many email signature updates to deal with?

Do you feel like you are taking up all of your time constantly visiting users’ desks to make changes to email signatures? Wish you could manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users? Well, there is an easy way!

Can she ping other machines on the network? And is she running WinXP Sp2? If so check these links out:

She can ping every machine on the nework.  I understand where you are going with this, but, please keep in mind, she is on a thin client.  The terminal server she is logging on to is sending net send messages to everybody else logged on to it.  If it were an OS related issue, I would think that it would be a problem for everybody that is logged in to this server.

Did you try a NetBIOS reregister (nbtstat -RR) yet?

Try with  msg command, it uses the same approach as shutdown messages do (not messanger service).

I wish I knew what you were asking me to try.  What is the command you want me to type?
