I think I've figured out how this works now. Yesterday the pm's I sent to you and Ben were initially listed in dark blue font in my out-folder. When I logged in this morning, after you had both read and replied to them, they were still in the out-folder, but now listed in red font. Later, upon my next visit to the messages page they had been moved to the sent folder.
