  • Message Queuing distribution lists are distribution group objects in Active Directory Domain Services.

  • The explicit members of distribution lists can be public queues, queue aliases, and other distribution lists, but not private queues or URL-named queues. Private queues and URL-named queues can be included in a distribution list by using queue aliases.
