Does metal have high boiling points?

It's not really sensible to answer this question because "metal" is a broad term. It's like asking are flowers red? Some are red, but not all. Generally metals have high melting and boiling points. Very few metals are liquid at or near room temperature, and some have very high boiling points. If you compare elemental metals with e.g. noble gases then clearly the metals have, in comparison, high boiling points. On the other hand some metals have lower boiling points than some ceramics.
