Gets or sets a value that indicates whether to retrieve Message.Recoverable property information when receiving or peeking a message.

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

public bool Recoverable { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true to receive Message.Recoverable information; otherwise, false. The default is false.

The Recoverable property of the Message class indicates whether delivery of a message is guaranteed, even if a computer crashes while the message is en route to the destination queue.

If delivery of a message is guaranteed, the message is stored locally at every step until the message is successfully forwarded to the next computer. Setting Message.Recoverable to true on the message could affect the throughput.

The following code example demonstrates the use of the Recoverable property.

// Set the queue's MessageReadPropertyFilter property to enable the
// message's Recoverable property.
queue.MessageReadPropertyFilter.Recoverable = true;

// Peek at the message. Time out after ten seconds in case the message
// was not delivered.
orderMessage = queue.Peek(TimeSpan.FromSeconds(10.0)); 

// Display the value of the message's Recoverable property.
Console.WriteLine("Message.Recoverable: {0}",
