In tips 0660, 0757, 1024, and 1025, I scripted various version of 'net send'.

If you wish to net send the contents of a text file to a group of user that is defined in a text file, use:

sndfleuf msgfile userfile

where:

msgfile   is a file that contains the message. If you type multiple lines, one long line will be sent.

userfile is a text file that contains one user per line.

Example: c:\folder1\message.txt contains:

Line 1                              line 2                              line 3                              C:\folder2\myteam.txt contains:                              Jerry                              Jennifer                              Graystone                              sndfleuf "c:\folder1\message.txt" "c:\folder2\myteam.txt"                              will send                               Line 1                              line 2                               line 3                              to Jerry, Jennifer, and Graystone.
sndfleuf.bat contains:
