On a box with 2.2.8a I used 2 variants:

echo "message" | smbclient -M recipient_machine -U 
name_of_your_choice > /dev/null

I created a file 'msg' and sent it with
cat /path/msg | smbclient -M recipient_machine -U name_of_your_choice 
> /dev/null

didn't try it on Samba2, but I think it will work there, too.
