Exception Condition

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.
