An application is using Messaging to receive Messages.

How can a messaging receiver gracefully handle receiving a message that makes no sense?

The receiver should move the improper message to an Invalid Message Channel, a special channel for messages that could not be processed by their receivers.

When designing a messaging system for applications to use, the administrator will need to define one or more Invalid Message Channels for the applications to use.
