How to send message to a local computer

Is it possible to send a message in home network. I have 3 windows 7 computer and all conntected using windows 7 homegroup option using my router(netgear). Is there a way to send a message to another computer user? I know "net send" in xp world to commnicate in the lan. I am not sure how it works in home network as there is not server concept.

I appreciate some one could able to help to find a way to my problem. I searched over the internet for a solution, nothing helped so far.

I also notice this link in the internet: Skatterbrainz Blog: Windows 7, MSG.EXE and Group Policy Preferences. Have to try this solution, but it looks like a big change on all the computers.

Try msg /? in command prompt and go from there. I've never gotten it to work myself. Good luck.
