I've sent a few private messages since being on this site and it seems that it's not being received on the other end.

Have you actually confirmed the PMs haven't been received? Either by verifying via another form of communications or checking your Outbox vs. Sent Messages?

I know we were having trouble with messages being redelivered if they were sent while a user's mailbox is full. I had that problem and alerted Son of the Raven.

PMs are not actually delivered in the manner that emails are delivered. When you "send" a PM it is placed in your outbox until the other person reads the PM. When they read the PM it is moved from your outbox to your Sent box. It does not mean that it has not been received. Just means that it has not been read.
