No reason you can't but the following may/do apply. Use MQFMT_NONE to send the file in binary format. >From a previous discusssion consider using the MQRFH2 header to deliver meta-data. Do NOT use MQGMO_CONVERT. Watch out for maximum message length MAXMSGL on Q, QMGR and channel definitions including the various transmit queues. If the files are going to consistently be big(>1Mb) you might want to set up a separate set of channels so you don't interfere with high volume small message response times.
