I'm trying to send messages to MSMQ using PHP. When the message is smaller than approximately 1.1 MB the message is sent. Otherwise, I get exception "com_exception: There are insufficient resources to perform this operation." The message is smaller than the limit 4 MB. This is what I've found out so far:

- file_get_contents and file_put_contents with PHP works with no problem, so upload limit should be fine
- sending same message not with php works with no problem, so it is somehow PHP-related
- purging messages from queue does not help
- no dead-letter messages

php.ini settings:


There is no limit on message size in msmq properties.
