The message queue for all our printers is QSYSOPR. All the paper out,
change labels, etc, go there. Why don't I set up a message queue
specifically for these messages, say PRTMSGS. Someone can monitor this
queue and it takes the print messages out of QSYSOPR.

Does anyone else already do this? Is there a downside I'm not thinking of?
Years ago we had a printer at the far end of the office away from the
system operator and I had it's messages go to a users message queue without
issue. Never thought of a message queue dedicated to printer messages
though.

I do that, but I do it by creating a dummy user profile. That way the
user messages cleanup process cleans up that message queue.
