We are using the C# .NET client library.

I create a channel like so

channel.ExchangeDeclare(workExchangeName, *ExchangeType.Direct*);

Then bind a queue like

channel.QueueBind(this.WorkQueueName, workExchangeName,

Today I was trying to debug a failing message from a different environment.
I took the message's JSON from that server, via the Management UI, and
manually created a message on my local machine, again via the Management
UI. There was no option to set a specific RoutingKey, it created one for me
with the same name as the queue 'WorkQueue'.

The local RabbitMQ had a couple of existing messages with a RoutingKey of

When I call channel.*BasicGet*(this.WorkQueueName, false) in a loop it
dequeues all three messages even though the channel was created to look at
a queue and exchange with the routing key of

Any idea why it would be ignoring the RoutingKey?
