That's a good one. I've been neck deep in messaging systems for the last two months, and "reliable" is the last word I'd use to describe them. The first word I'd use?

Possibly if you've got the budget for MQSeries and multiple expensive professionals dedicated to babysitting it full-time, you can make messaging reliable.
