Notice

The Notice command sends a message to one or more channels or nicknames on a server. Users do not see the list of users who received the message.

When you send a Notice command, do not expect an automatic response from a client. In contrast, the Privmsg command elicits an automatic response from a client if a response has been set with the Away command.

In addition to the functionality described in RFC 1459, Chat Service allows you to specify that a notice be sent only to particular nicknames in a particular channel. For example, the command "notice #mychannel jim,sue,kim" sends a message to the users with nicknames Jim, Sue, and Kim on the channel #MyChannel.
