How to message my users?

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
Having a recent growth spurt, i need to be able to message my users with something like "log off NOW the servers will be going down for a reboot @ exactly 1100hrs" or similar, but it seems there's not a messenger service in 2003 SmallBusiness Server?

Is ther a shaarware or something i can apply to the network to allow this? I am not looking for a chat application which could be shut down or ignored, I want something that forces a windows dialog before my users. I know this function exists in the terminal server sesions, how about for regular users logged into regular machines which are logged into the PDC?
