comment How to send a prompt to a remote machine like the “you have mail”, ie not using wall
Worked a treat! From my remote machine I have ssh ${CURRENT_HOST} "echo $TEXT > /etc/sysadmin-message" in my script!

So I just write my message into /etc/sysadmin-message, or just touch it if its the same text?
