so it would go like

net send 555.555.5.5 hi hows it going

and that should send a message to 555.555.5.5? and if so what would it say in my command prompt telling me that the message went?

Ya. Ur syntax is correct. U wont get any ack. But it'll defintely send it to the dest. If not u'll get an error msg, like 'type Help msg 5777'. Jus check it.
