I'm using a MSMQ Trace listener to centralize my log files for different servers.

It's working fine, but I can't find information about several options listed here:

I need more details about Recoverable and UseDeadLetterQueue

With Recoverable set to true, what is done to ensure the message is delivered?

If I use UseDeadLetterQueue do I need to have MSMQ Server installed on every server for the death letter queue?

I couldn't find any practical case using those properties.

Can someone help me?

These properties are actually being used as properties for the System.Messaging.Message object.  To answer your question, refer to the Message.Recoverable and Message.UseDeadLetterQueue properties (Remarks section).
