I've been wondering this for a while now and I want to know what the difference is between sentbox and outbox in your pm page? If I'm stupid and this is really obvious, let me know...but they sound the same to me. confused

EDIT:
Why sent? Why out? Why not either or? I mean in tangible physical mail I could see the need for an outbox, like in offices and stuff, but a sentbox and an outbox...I just don't get....Oh! Wait! ...is the sentbox for mail that has been opened by the person you sent it to and the outbox for mail that hasn't been opened by the recipient yet? If so, then that's pretty cool. If not, then...who takes the mail from the outbox and gives it to the person it's marked for? Does the server just do it? If so, why does it have to wait...it's pretty much email right? If so, why do we need an outbox? I'm sent...SPENT....spent... tard

When you create a new message it goes in the outbox, after it's read by the recipient it's automatically moved to the sentbox.

Lol

It's quite cool, it means you can know when your message has been read. Also, I think you can delete the message from your outbox so you can delete a message after you've sent it and before it's received by the potential recipient.
