I'm trying to use the NET SEND command in the cmd. I need to send a message to ALL users that are currently logged on.  From what i've tried, when i send a message to ALL users, the users that are not logged-on, get message the next time they login. I dont want that.  I want the message to skip those who are not logged in.
Thanks
Aron

Net send doesn't do that...

You would have to write a scripted solution to check if there is a logged on user, then run net send....
Seems like a lot of work for something that is a "minor" inconvenience.
