    According to Microsoft's Help File, Net send may not "work properly" after installing SP2. Can anyone recommend any other way to send messages to individual users that will work with XP after SP2 is installed?

    thanks for any suggestions..

    If the Firewall is turned on, it is probably blocking it. I also thought that they were going to turn off the Messenger Service in SP2.

    Yes, sp2 disables messenger service, so i need some script so that I can re-enable the service, set it back to automatic, and start it.. I can use net start messenger or net stop messenger to start and stop the service, except that the service is disabled so that method fails.

    I have not installed Service Pack 2 yet, but usually when Microsoft pushes out a new Service pack, they also push down alot of new Group Policies. They may have a Group Policy to re-enable the Messenger Service.
