When you delete a queue, all messages within the queue are also deleted. However, the triggers associated with that queue are not deleted. If you later re-create a queue of the same name, this queue will use any existing triggers. The Message Queuing Triggers service will not monitor this re-created queue until the computer is restarted, or until the associated triggers are disabled, and then enabled again.
To delete queues
Open Computer Management.
In the console tree, right-click the queue.
- Computer Management/Services and Applications/Message Queuing/ YourQueueFolder (such as Public Queues or Private Queues)/ YourQueue
Click Delete .
When prompted, click Yes to delete the queue.
