Hi,

I need a messenger software to send alerts(like pop-up messages) to my co-workers on a lan.
Have you ever try some of those?

I am already testing some trial versions but I am shure that i can find better ones.

thank's

Back in time, in the good old days wee used the "net send" command. Windows 7 got rid of this tool, and replaced it with "msg".

Take a look here:

I have no experience with other LAN messengers, but here is a list:

Hi,

Finally, I tested dMessage and Akeni Lan Messenger. Try it to find what software correspond to your need.

Hi,

I finally decide to take dMessage software because it's very easy to install and to use and the editor (MGI Consultants) looks like to be serious and very reactive.
