Deletes the queue specified by the QueueUrl, even if the queue is empty. If the specified queue doesn't exist, Amazon SQS returns a successful response.

Be careful with the DeleteQueue action: When you delete a queue, any messages in the queue are no longer available.

When you delete a queue, the deletion process takes up to 60 seconds. Requests you send involving that queue during the 60 seconds might succeed. For example, a SendMessage request might succeed, but after 60 seconds the queue and the message you sent no longer exist.

When you delete a queue, you must wait at least 60 seconds before creating a queue with the same name.

Note:

For PCL and Unity this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to DeleteQueueAsync.
