Yes, another one. But this one has a few neat features. One is that it will persist off the computer names that you send messages too, so you dont have to re-enter them every time you start the app. Also, this app resides in the system tray when minimized. It has two options when recieving messages when its in the system tray. It will either blink the icon showing a new message has arrived but stay in the tray or un-minimize when a new message has arrived and show the message. This is based on user preference setting.

MSXML is required, as an XML file is used to persist data.
