A single message is never delivered to multiple consumers. Messages are distributed
at *routing* stage (exchange => one or more queues), not delivery. See
So sounds like what you want is a fanout exchange, one queue per consumer
with auto-delete attribute set to true.
By the way, RabbitMQ mailing list has a new home:
