This Generic Function belongs to Working Area Middleware. Message Store functionality is used to preserve and organize digital messages, and can be used by other parts of a Message Handling facilities for intermediate storage of messages, e.g. as a message queue. Thus it can be seen as a specialized version of Queuing. However, it can also store messages for as long as a recipient needs to have access to any individual message - such as with user e-mail.

This Generic Function can be used as the front end for a (more generic) Data Management or File Storage service, allowing for message related metadata, indexing of messages, et cetera. However, if details about the underlying storage mechanisms aren't needed, the Message Store function may also be used to represent the whole of the message store functionality.
