Hello All, I would like to be able to send users of my app a message
(from within their LAN) in the form of a popup or balloon ( along the
lines of an email client which notifies you of new mail ) , is there a
way to do this ? I would like to be selective as to who receives the
messages.

This is done by using one or both, Windows Alerter Service (on client) and
Windows Messenger Service, or via WMI. Here are a few resources you can take
a look at:
