  • net send {name | * | /domain[:name] | /users} message

    name
    Specifies the user name, computer name, or messaging name to which you want to send the message.

    Sends the message to all the names in your domain or workgroup.
    /domain:name
    Sends the message to all the names in the computer's domain. You can specify name to send the message to all the names in the specified domain or workgroup.
    /users

    message
    Required. Specifies the text of the message.
