Message.SenderVersion Property

Gets the version of Message Queuing used to send the message.

Namespace:  System.Messaging
Assembly:  System.Messaging (in System.Messaging.dll)

public long SenderVersion { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int64
The version of Message Queuing used to send the message.


The message has not been sent. This property can only be read on messages retrieved from a queue.


The message queue is filtered to ignore the SenderVersion property.

The SenderVersion property is important for certain features. For example, transaction processing is supported only by Message Queuing 2.0 and later, and digital signatures are used to authenticate messages sent by MSMQ 1.0.

The sending Queue Manager sets the SenderVersion property when the message is sent.

The following code example displays the value of a message's SenderVersion property.

// Display the value of the message's SenderVersion property. 
// To view this property value, the queue's 
// MessageReadPropertyFilter.SenderVersion property must be set to 
// true before the message is received.
Console.WriteLine("Message.SenderVersion: {0}",
