When I send a PM, after a few days of no response I like to check to see of the person got my PM. So I look at the little 'piece of paper' icon that indicates read or unread.

It always shows 'read' status. Even the instant after I have sent the message.

I use Safari by the way.

I think that is to show if you read your own message? :) Message tracking is for seeing if the recipient has read the message.

You can request a read receipt when you send a PM.
