    I do the same exact thing for letting folks know of any Exchange issues. I also have well over 200 PCs but it never takes hours. Depending on how many machines are powered off and slow things down a bit the entire job takes less than 20 minutes. What's your average time on a successful message? Are you just using a batch/script using the msg command?

    Well I've discovered that its partly my fault that it takes so long.  It deploys rather quickly, but I had the check box at the bottom (wait for user to click ok" ticked, and so when it hit computers that didn't have a user sitting there the task would remain "running" and prevent the next PC from getting its message.   I now have the message set to display for 3600 seconds, and the box for "wait for user.." un ticked and everything seems to be going better.
