MessageQueue Asynchronous Transactional or Non-Transactional

I have found many examples on the Internet concerning Asynchronous MessageQueue. The examples are not always clear if its a Transactional or Non-Transactional queue. I have a successful working Non-Transactional Synchronous queue working with C# .NET code. Now I want to work with Asynchronous code.

Q. Can a Transactional queue only be used Asynchronously?

Q. Can a Non-Transactional queue be used Asynchronously?

Q. Advantages or disadvantages of either question above?

             Nope it can be both.

Q. Can a Non-Transactional queue be used Asynchronously?
            You can't call. Async is only for transactional MSMQ.

Q. Advantages or disadvantages of either question above?
         The answer is based on your requirement.  If reliability is not a concern for your application, that is, if your application is not affected by lost messages or the order of arrival of messages, use non transactional messaging.
         Other you should use Transcational Q. Remeber that the reliability offerered by transactional messaging comes at a cost: performance.

Hope this helps.
