Not applicable.



The MessageBuffer object to test.

Return Value

true if the MessageBuffer object satisfies the filter criteria; otherwise, false.

The message must be fully buffered if the body is to be inspected by the filter. The body of the MessageBuffer is fully buffered and therefore can be inspected by a filter. The body of a Message that has not been fully buffered may be consumed by the filter inspection. The header element of a Message is automatically buffered and therefore can be inspected without being consumed.
