  • Microsoft Message Queue Server 1.0

This article was previously published under Q249195


When you send an e-mail message from a computer running Microsoft Exchange Server to a Microsoft Message Queue Server (MSMQ) message queue, the MSMQ Exchange Server connector removes the e-mail message.


This problem usually occurs when you use a queue for both inbound and outbound MSMQ Exchange Server connector e-mail messages. When you use MSMQ Exchange Server connector queues, use a queue for either inbound or outbound e-mail messages only, not for both.

When an e-mail message arrives in an outbound queue, the MSMQ Exchange Server connector always attempts to send the message through Exchange Server. If the e-mail message is incorrectly formatted, the MSMQ Exchange Server connector sends a non-deliverable receipt (NDR) to the Exchange Server administrator.


Set up an inbound queue and a separate outbound queue.


This behavior is by design.


Steps to Reproduce Behavior

1. Set up a MSMQ Exchange Server connector instance to monitor an inbound queue.

2. Create a MSMQ custom recipient in Exchange Server to go to this queue.

3. Send a message to the custom recipient.
