Kind of 'round-about' way, but if you really need to save a sent message longer than two weeks, open the message, forward it to yourself, and from your inbox, you can archive the message. Of course, the read/unread is irrelevant at that point.

if I send someone a message, but they haven't read it yet, their trailname will remain in bold font?

More-or-less, but it's not infallible. It's easy to mark a message as read or unread at whim, and if they forward messages to their regular email address, the icons means absolutely nothing. Even if they have messages forwarded to an email address, the trailname might be bold or not--there are two different forwarding options and one leaves the message as read on AQ and the other leaves it as unread.

So in a nutshell, as a rule of thumb, it might work. But really, there are absolutely no absolutes when it comes to knowing if someone has read your message or not.
