    From what I've always seen, if you pay it will use it's own messenging api, if you go the free route it will use the Windows inbuilt messaging service.

    Remember, by default Windows XP with Service Pack 2 has the messaging service disabled, so netsend - and anything that uses it - will not work anyway.

    you need to start the messnger service on each machine, but then you can use Net Send from the dos prompt
