The MessageQueueAccessRights enumeration enables you to specify Message Queuing object-specific rights such as receiving, peeking, or writing messages, or setting queue properties. It is one of two enumerations to which the GenericAccessRights enumeration maps extensive read, write, or execute abilities. The other, StandardAccessRights, enables you to specify rights common to most objects, for example, deleting the object or reading a security descriptor.

Both StandardAccessRights and MessageQueueAccessRights provide a member for deleting a queue. The needs of the application define which set of flags you use.

The access rights associated with the MessageQueueAccessRights enumeration are listed in the Permissions box of the queue properties window.
