Sending messages with SNPP

When I hard code a message in the SNPP message property, the server accepts the message but does not send it.

The object will always use the level 2 command, 'DATA', to send a page to the server, followed by a 'SEND'. If you wish to use the level one 'MESS' command (this only allows for a single line send), you will need to do so using the Command property: .Command = "MESS Text To Send"

Older versions of IPWorks did use the MESS command, and you needed to append a chr(10) to the message data in order for it to send the DATA command afterward.
