Well, there's still exactly the same ordering guarantee as there is with
a single publisher: messages from each publishing channel won't get
reordered with respect to each other. We just don't guarantee anything
about ordering between channels. And indeed it's hard to see how we could.
To the OP: either something weird is happening in your publishers
causing them to buffer messages for hours before sending to RabbitMQ
(unlikely I guess but I should mention it) or messages are not being
acknowledged by your consumers and are then being requeued once the
consumer disconnects. In the latter case all the "late" messages should
have the "redelivered" flag set.
