msg.exe command previously posted to wrong board by error

Hello, I'm trying to use the msg.exe command to send a message to a computer on my network.  I have a computer name and the name of the individual thats currently logged on.  i'm not sure of the proper syntax to list in order for this to work.  I tried the following:
msg /server:arjjjjjjjj * tell me if you get this message

I received an error 5 so I'm not too sure what I'm doing wrong.

usernames are located in the C: folder
computer name is arjjjjjjjj
