Creating windows service and security context

This seems like a often-asked topic.

I created a windows service and installed it on my workstation. The
application basically goes out and "receieves" messages from a queue on a
remote server.

When I use a windows forms app that uses the same components(classes), it
works fine but as a service it blocks on GetAllMessages() method due to
security issue. However, I am able to create messages, so that rules out
any network issues.

I tried running the service as my logon user giving it log on as service
right on the remote server. The logon user has proper rights on the remote
queues to fetch messages. What is it that I am missing? Even though I set
the service account to my logon use, I am wondering whether that is
propagating at all. Is there a way to verify that the service is indeed
running as my logon user? And also, are there other security policies, etc.
that I must check other than Log on as service?
