Business Software/Messaging software for windows


hello, I am looking for a windows software that can server as a messaging software for windows 7/8 users in a private network. In windows XP we used Timbuktu Pro, and we are looking for a similar software for windows 7/8. Each message sent to a user must popup a a unique windows for each message, so the message is not ignored. The software must preferably contain a list of users with IP addresses. We tried Lantalk but it's not good enough, the messages sometimes are not read or ignored. Thank you for any suggestions you have.

Hi Robert,

It appears that Timbuktu Pro is still available through Motorola, but I am not certain of this.  They list a version for Windows 7/8.

You may want to switch to a different product, as Motorola may not continue to offer Timbuktu - I suggest you look into BigAnt (  You can watch demo videos of the product at  This product runs on a "server", but you can configure any computer to be a server if you want.  It has a robust feature set, but you would have to evaluate it yourself to see if it has everything you need.
