System Queues

Queues that are created by Message Queuing are referred to as system queues. Applications can read the messages in system queues, but cannot address messages to them. For information about different types of system queues, see the following links:

  • Queue journals contain copies of all messages removed from a queue. Computer journals contain copies of all messages sent from a computer. For more information, see Journals.

  • Message Queuing uses internal private queues as interim queues for storing and forwarding messages in transit to a destination queue. These queues are not published in Active Directory Domain Services. Outgoing queues are local internal queues, generated automatically to store messages sent to remote queues. For more information, see Internal Private Queues and Outgoing Queues.

  • Dead-letter queues contain messages that cannot be delivered. Message Queuing provides a transactional dead-letter queue and a nontransactional dead-letter queue. For more information, see Dead-Letter Queues.

  • Connector queues are used for cross-platform messaging. For more information, see Connector Queues.
