Thanks Michael,

I tried to declare two queues and bind each queue to the exchange. Then
publish the message to the exchange, so that the message will be sent to the
two queues as follows:

var connectionFactory = new ConnectionFactory();
        connectionFactory.HostName = "localhost";

        using (IConnection connection =
            using (IModel model = connection.CreateModel())
                model.ExchangeDeclare("MyExchange", ExchangeType.Fanout,
                model.QueueDeclare("QueueOne", true);
                model.QueueDeclare("QueueTwo", true);
                model.QueueBind("MyQueueOne", "MyExchange", "", false,
                    new Dictionary<string,object>());
                model.QueueBind("MyQueueTwo", "MyExchange", "", false,
                    new Dictionary<string,object>());
                string message = "Hello";
                IBasicProperties basicProperties =
                model.BasicPublish("MyExchange", "", false, false,

However, I am getting CS1501: No overload for method 'QueueDeclare' takes 2
arguments. My question is 1) can i declare multiple queues to then use
fanout exchange and publish a message to multiple queues? 2) what is the
last argument for QueueBind?

Thanks again,
