I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I just recently purchased at a good price LANTalk Software.  Took a bit of time to configure across the network but it's working well so far and only works internally.  How long of a message do you need to send?

Something between 10 -20 lines. Does the licensed version of LANTalk have any limit?
You can try Softros LAN messenger
Free trial doesn't have any limits, except time of use (30 days)
One message can have about 16 000 symbols. Is it enough?

Thanks for the  input.It seems to be a good software, although a bit pricy. Are there any messengers for free that can allow you to send long messages to users in a network? Any open source ones?
I use openfire on my local network of about 50 users.
With the Spark messenger client

Can send any size messages, also has chat rooms, AD support, web-based client, live-support plugin, etc...  It's better than most of the paid ones.
