Thanks for the reply.

I have finished working through a few of the tutorials you referenced. Either I missed something or haven't yet gotten to the right tutorial.

You've told me that it's possible to leave a message in a queue, i.e., that a message can persist in its queue even after it has been received by a consumer. Can you tell me how this is done?

Also, such an approach suggests the need to explicitly delete the message from the queue. Is there a way to do this?
