After you restart your computer, transactional messages in Microsoft Message Queuing may be purged for any one of the following reasons:
Message Queuing keeps a cache of parameters for local public queues. The cache of parameters for local public queues is named LQS. When you restart your computer to recover packet files, Message Queuing uses this cache to create internal queue objects. If an LQS file is not found for a local public queue, messages are considered "outgoing." When Message Queuing connects to the Active Directory directory service and then finds that the queue is a local public queue, Message Queuing marks the queue object not valid and then purges all messages from the queue.
