If you have multiple Messages to upload at the same time, you could
AddMessage() them all into a single Message, and then just upload that one
Message using a unique node label -- that would cut down on the overhead
somewhat.  (To save space further, you could run the Message through
DeflateMessage() before uploading it, so that the data is stored in 
format on the server)

However, there is no built-in way to append to a FIFO queue of Messages in 
the server database, AFAIK, so you would have to modify muscled if you 
wanted that.
