A queuing approach would provide a much more durable/scalable design than a
simple POP3 approach - especially with regard to "lost" messages.

Yes, MSMQ is definitely better solution (I don't know MQ Series of IBM)

But the downside is that we need SQL Server as a storage of MSMQ. Cost
is one problem, and another problem is that they are difficult to deploy
(at least for me) and difficult to maintain for many administrators.

... or is it easy to deploy? My experience with MSMQ/SQL Server is
