Help with status of inbound/outbound queues


Hello SDN XI experts!

I hope one of you can offer some assistance with an XI issue we have, as we currently have no XI resource on site and we're stuck in dire straits!

We have had some problems with our inbound and outbound queues in XI, and a search of the net and SDN hasn't helped yet. Basically, if I go in to transaction SMQ1 or SMQ2, I can see that there are files (or do you call them messages?) are building up in our queues with the status READY. To process these files through XI, I am going in to transaction SMQ1 and SMQ2 periodically, and activating the queue. This sets the status to RUNNING, and the files/messages are processed successfully.

What I'm after is how do I either:

a) set the queues so that they are always in status RUNNING;

b) schedule a job to activate the queues periodically; or

c) is there some other thing I am missing?

Sorry if this is a bit vague, but I have no experience of XI at all. If I haven't provided enough info, please ask some questions. Anything you can do to help would be great as I'm manually doing this ten times a day and it's getting tiresome!
