I want to learn the absolute correct way to pass exceptions from Class Library .dll to other .dll or Executable (Form1). I don't receive the actual .dll exception, instead I receive a general try/catch exception from the Form1 attempt to use the .dll. Help!

[Example Summary]
Click a button on Form1 to clear the local Queue without first specifying the Queue name will cause an exception.
Seems to me the the .dll CreateQueue() exception should 'bubble-up' to Form1.

Does this make sense?

Q1. How do I pass the .dll exception to the .exe (MyForm1)?
Q2. How do I pass the .dll exception to another .dll then to .exe (MyForm1)?

[MyForm1.exe]
public static void ClearQueue()
        {
            msgQueue.QueueName = ""; //intentionally blank for testing purposes
            msgQueue.ClearQueue();
        }


[MyQueueManager.dll] (referenced by MyForm1.exe)
        public static void CreateQueue()
        {
            try
            {
                if (MessageQueue.Exists(_queueName))
                    msgQueue = new MessageQueue(_queueName);
                else
                    msgQueue = MessageQueue.Create(_queueName);
            }
            catch (MessageQueueException ex)
            {
                throw new Exception("MsmqManager.MSMQueue.CreateQueue() Exception: ", ex);
            }
        }

        public static void ClearQueue()
        {
            CreateQueue();

            msgQueue.Purge();
        }
