- Microsoft Windows for Workgroups 3.11
This article was previously published under Q106367
If you try to send a WinPopup message to a user or computer that does not exist on the network or to yourself, you receive the following error message:
However, if you send a WinPopup message to a workgroup that is not on the network, you do not receive an error message; instead, you are informed that the "message was successfully sent" even though this is not the case.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Windows for Workgroups version 3.11. We are researching this problem and will post new information here as it becomes available.
Steps to Reproduce Problem
- Open WinPopup.
- From the Messages menu, choose Send.
- In the To box, select Workgroup.
- In the text box, insert an invalid workgroup name (for example, "INVALID").
NOTE: The Browse button is not accessible for workgroup names; it is available only for user and computer names.
- Choose OK.
The following message appears even though the workgroup INVALID does not exist:
The message was successfully sent.
