The 'smbclient' command on your unix server will do this.  Just use the
command line:

/usr/local/samba/bin/smbclient -M hostname -U "system administrator" 

and type in your message followed by a ^D.  I've not tried sending these
messages from a client as yet so I don't know if this strictly answers
your question.
