It depends on your particular client but probably RabbitMQ delivers messages and clients then keep them around
until they are all processed. If you use message acknowledgements, there is no reason to worry: if your application crashes, RabbitMQ will notice that connection was closed and will requeue unacknowledged messages.

See basic.qos AMQP method if you want to control this behavior.
