I don't have VB6 on my machines anymore so I can't code up anything concrete for you...

...do you want the new message to replace the existing one?...or should they stack?  (I don't use messaging systems)

You can create multiple instances of Form2:
 
    Dim f2 As New Form2

Then move the Timer code into Form2 itself...  (instead of driving Form2 from within Form1)
