If you are running the Message Agent in continuous mode (not batch mode) you may wish to keep the Message Agent running all the time that the server is running.
You can do this by running the Message Agent as a Windows service. A service can be configured to keep running even when the current user logs out, and to start as soon as the operating system is started.
For a full description of running programs as services, see Running the Database Server.
