Take Outgoing Queues Offline

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012

When you take Message Queuing offline from the network, you pause the operation of all outgoing queues on the local computer. This is useful when you communicate over a slow, expensive connection and want to defer sending messages in all outgoing queues on the computer to a later time. You can also pause the operation of a single outgoing queue.

You can only perform this task by using Computer Management.
