MSMQ (also known as "Microsoft Message Queuing") is a messaging protocol implemented by Microsoft that allows applications to communicate across systems that are temporary offline.


  • It's free and integrated into Windows
  • Good integration with .NET framework
  • The messages can be kept on hard-disk, so they won’t be lost
  • It has monitoring capabilities
  • It has transactional queues
  • The .NET API provides straight forward implementation


  • Can be used only by Windows users
  • Doesn't have native support for Java Message System
  • Poison messages will sometimes appear when doing transactional queues
  • Can't manage remote queues
