Quick question.. if I want to send a collection of sequenced messages, will post message deliver the messages in the same order as send message? I know it's an odd question because send message with naturally sequence based on the blocking nature of the call, but I'm curious if PostMessage guarentees the sequence is preserved.

Thank you!

Yes, the order will be preserved. But PostMessage will discard messages if they are not delivered. This can cause drop of some messages. With SendMessage you at least know that delivery failed and can re-send the message.
