	I personally use justpop.exe which I run in my login scripts for my 

Win9X system.  This gives me the ablity to send message, and not let my users 

play with WinPopUp, or even shut it down.  There are some problems with justpop

which I would like to fix, but I am not programmer and have not found 
the time to look into Windows programming.  Still, it's nice and almost 
as good as the service on NT/2K ...

	Found it again with google and in the Samba archives ... ;-) ...
