    In console session on SBS2003, net send * works just fine.
    In fact, that's the ONLY way it works.
    No matter what userid I type in place of *, it fails.

    SBS2k3 SP2, all clients WinXP Sp3, Win2K SP4 or Win7 SP1 with Trend Micro Worry Free Business Security.
    All in same domain on same subnet.

    Why is it that only a broadcast version (net send * "text") works?

    net send was deprecated years ago and is not really supported any longer. It is in general disabled on client computers by default for security reasons.
