How should I use MSMQ for messaging with Flex/WebOrb for .NET?

I am a beginning with Flex and MSMQ.  I am trying to use WebOrb's messaging component with MSMQ for my new Flex application..  I would like my server to send real time notifications to a  specific client,  such as "You got mail!" if that client is logged in at that time.  I want to keep 10 messages per user at all time so they don't get a flooded if they don't logged on for a week.

1) What would be the best way to setup the queues for web application in general?  Assuming that my app will have thousands of users a day, should I be creating a queue for each user so they have their own private queues?

2) How can I maintain the number of messages in each queue(if I am creating a queue per user?) so it would only keep the last 10 messages?

I didn't think you could "push" with Weborb yet?

Have you considered BlazeDS or LiveCycle?

I think it does now..  Unless you mean something different.

We are quite committed to .NET as the web server now as supposed to J2EE and I don't think Live Cycle is free?  We have done quite alot stuff with WebOrb already so we would like to stick with that technology.
