Hi Sylvain -

Thanks for your response.

In my case, I am publishing the messages with the mandatory flag set to 
true and I am registering a ReturnListener with the channel. However, I 
do not see any messages being returned. For what it's worth, I do see 
messages returned if I set the immediate flag to true and do not have a 
consumer running, but that's a different scenario.
