I am looking for a small client app that can be installed on client PC's (Linux and Mac optionally) that will popup when an administrator sends a message to them.  The Microsoft methods are very much prone to failure and I don't want to use NET SEND or MSG.

Having trouble finding a nice utility that can handle this.

You could setup/host an internal instant messaging client.  Look for open source IM.
