Sending a message to a user profile

I can send a reversed image error message to line 24 using sndpgmmsg, but what I want to do is send the message to a user profile. When I do this I lose the RI, but can see the Hexi characters. Help!

The message Queue for a user profile is displayed in a different manner than a program message queue. In a program message queue, the display file allows for attributes such as colors, reverse images and others. The bad news is that a message sent to a normal message queue that would be associated with a user or workstation does not support extended attributes.
