The Message Queue page lists your organization's unsent (canceled, scheduled, and queued for approval) messages. You can:
- edit messages and send jobs, and
- review and cancel unsent messages.
Access the Message Queue
To access the Message Queue list page:

Searching and filtering
Use the search and filter options to limit the number of queued messages that display in the list.
To search for queued messages:

To filter the list:
- Above the grid, click Filter Grid to select which queued messages (by status) to display.
The list immediately refreshes and the page title updates to reflect the filtering.
