We created a CL (MSGQCL). It is called by entering a command (MSGQ) on the message line.
You could add it to her menu also.

Subject: QSYSOPR message queue security
Every day our billing clerk serves as the de facto system operator. When
she comes in she does a CHGMSGQ QSYSOPR *BREAK SEV(30) so that any QSYSOPR
messages break to her.
Today she accidentally cleared QSYSOPR. Not a catastrophe but we don't
A google search indicated that removing the *DLT authority would prevent
her from deleting messages or clearing the queue. Great, except she then
was not allowed to do the CHGMSGQ QSYSOPR *BREAK SEV(30). Catch 22!
Anyone know a Q&D way around this?
