  2. See tip 757 and 1025 in the 'Tips & Tricks' at for security groups.

    I will script the distribution group membership and add it to my site. Check "Recent Tips"

    You can send from a script or batch file in a loop.

    NET SEND sends to machines connected on the domain and finds users by
    account name if they are connected.
    NET SENDS requires the messenger service to be running.

    NET SEND appears to be phasing out and may not work with Windows XP SP2 or
    with terminal services.
