Using Samba to send POPUPS query

Hello, On our Sun Solaris Unix system i can send POPUP messages to a users
PC using this command :-

echo $message | /usr/local/samba/bin/smbclient -M $machine 	(where
$message contains a message i want to send and $machine is the PC id etc)

The above works fine but we have other users who use Thin Client and so i
need to send POPUP messages to the network login session rather than their
machine (as their machine id's are the same), is there any way in Samba that
i can do this?
