Messages that are addressed to SPX destination queues that are not valid may appear in the Microsoft Message Queuing Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in. Messages that are correctly addressed may also accumulate in outgoing queues.
This problem occurs if the version of the Mqqm.dll file is greater than 756 and if Message Queuing is installed in Workgroup mode.
As a reference, Windows 2000 Service Pack 3 (SP3) contains build 751 of the Mqqm.dll file and Windows 2000 SP4 contains build 775 of the Mqqm.dll file. This problem is corrected in build 785 of the Mqqm.dll file.

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
Message Queuing always tries to join a domain when it is restarted. When Message Queuing joins a domain, it creates an msmqConfiguration object in the Active Directory directory service. Message Queuing also changes its own queue manager GUID to be the new GUID of the new msmqConfiguration object. Message Queuing then converts all relevant packets in local message files to reflect the change in the queue manager GUID.
The problem occurs with direct messages. The "user header" in Message Queuing messages contains the GUID of the destination computer. This configuration is true for messages that are sent to public or private format names and for messages that are sent to the local computer with a direct format name. However, for messages that are sent to a remote computer with a direct format name, this field in the user header retains the IP address of the source computer. The destination queue manager must have the IP address to send final acknowledgments for transactional (xact) messages after you restart Message Queuing.
The code that converted the packets overwrites the IP of the source computer with a new GUID of the destination (local) computer. The IP address of the source computer is overwritten when the join domain code runs. When you start Message Queuing, this code runs if the computer is part of a domain and if Message Queuing is installed in Workgroup mode.
When Message Queuing tries to send final acknowledgements, it uses the GUID as an address, and the destination format names that are not correct are used (SPX:80, for example). To work around this problem, when the packets are converted, do not overwrite the source IP address in packets that are received from remote computers with direct format names.
This hotfix also includes code that deals with packets that were already corrupted before you applied the hotfix. The outgoing queues that are created for these packets are paused so that CPU and network resources are not wasted. The user cannot delete these files because the format name is not valid. To clean up corrupted storage, stop any inbound messages, receive all legitimate messages from all queues, and then delete the messages files (*.mq) in the Msmq\Storage directory. The hotfix also includes code that prevents sending order/final acknowledgements to corrupted addresses.
The following entries are logged in the Msmq.log file if Message Queuing error logging is enabled:
0x880> Mon Feb 23 13:47:42 2004: QM Error: qmutil/50, BOOL: 0 0x880> Mon Feb 23 13:47:42 2004: QM Error: qmutil/1789, Point
