What is the difference between sent and outbox?

Post by Viktor K » Sun Jul 02, 2017 2:44 am

In Private Messages, I have "Outbox (1)" and "Sent"

What's the difference?

I think outbox means the recipient has not read it yet, and that it will transition to sent once they do.

I think is harks back to really olden days of dial up. , where you write a reply and it sits in the out box until you "dial up" again, where upon it gets esent
