In Barklund's formal semantics for Erlang
the following is stated:
"The semantics communication (rule com) is such that if two consecutive
messages m1 and m2 are sent by process p1 to process
p2 then message m1 will always arrive before message m2."
I'm not sure where else it is defined, but I'm pretty sure that you can
rely on this being true.
