I presume you mean to another user. If that's the case there's talk see an explaination here: http://linux.about.com/od/commands/l/blcmdl1_talk.htm or you could always set up a Jabber server and have your own internal Instant Messenger system. Read more about Jabber here: http://www.jabber.org/about/overview.shtml
