    Question All messages written by Guest A must not be sent to Guest B.

    Hi,

    1). All messages written by Guest A must not be sent to Guest B.
    2). All messages written by Guest A must not be send to Guest B.

    Which one is correct? It seems both are correct to me.

    Please help to explain, thanks.

    Re: All messages written by Guest A must not be sent to Guest B.

    You need the third form (past participle) sent in that passive construction.

    ps. It's a rather unnatural sentence. We'd normally say No messages ... must be sent.
