To send a one-line message to a user which he will receive the next
time he logs in, use the monitor command:
where PRG is his programmer name (initials).  For messages longer
than one line, type just MAIL PRG and follow instructions.  If you
don't know the programmer name for a user you can try his real name.

Various switches can be used with the MAIL command, including:
  /HEADER   /E      /DATE  /ARPA

For more information, see the MAIL section and the MAIL appendix in the
printed Monitor Command Manual, which is online as MONCOM.BH[S,DOC],
with updates in MONCOM.UPD[S,DOC].
