Resolve

Confirm that a dead-letter queue exists and confirm permissions

A dead-letter queue must exist. It also needs appropriate permissions.

To resolve this issue:

  • Confirm that the dead-letter queue that is specified in the event exists.
  • Determine the user account under which Message Queuing is running.
  • Confirm that the user account has permissions on the specified queue.

Confirm that the dead-letter queue exists

To confirm that the dead-letter queue exists:

  • On the computer that is specified in the queue format name, locate the dead-letter queue that is specified in the event. For more information about queue format names, see Queue Names (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=104739).

To perform these procedures, you must have membership in Administrators, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

  2. In the details pane, locate Message Queuing.
  3. Check the Log On As column to see what user the service runs under.

    Note: When Message Queuing is running in workgroup mode, the default user is Local System. When Message Queuing is running in domain mode, the default user is Network Service.

Confirm that the user account has permissions on the specified queue

  6. If the user is not already in the list, click Add.
  7. In Enter the object names to select, enter the user under which Message Queuing is running.
  8. Click Check Names to make sure that you are adding the correct permissions.
  9. If the correct user is found, click OK.
  10. In the queue’s security properties, under Permissions, select the Allow check box next to the Send Message permission.
  11. Click OK.
