Sending Winpopup Messages

Sending Winpopup messages is possible by issuing the command
smbclient -M <host>.

How do I send a winpopup message to a user, or a workgroup.
If I type smbclient -M <workgroup> I get 'Unknown Host'.

I have tried various methods, but no success.

I wish to cause winpopup messages to be broadcast when the server is 
shutting down, automatically.

What am I doing wrong???!
