Yee Haa, as if we couldn't annoy our users more with message boxes, emails, and other friendly pop ups ;P here comes the net send. Has a test for success to determine if the send worked. If an invalid name is entered it can take a bit to fail, so don't use this from a time sensitive call. See the net send help in NT for mor help on using. Also if your users are using Win 9X they will not recieve any net sends unless they are running win pop up. Search MSFT for winpopup documentation.
