A great program for Win9x machines if you still have them (like we do :))
is justpop. Do a Google search for JUSTPOP.EXE -- it's a free-standing
program, and mimicks the behavior of the NT/2K messenger service... no
facility to write back, just a clean box with an [OK] button and the
message and the user it came from. I use it with LPRng to be notified at
the help desk of printer errors.
