What would be the state of the task that it would nt be able / ready to receive the message?

Basically, the answer is no.

It's important to note that messages are not sent to a particular task ... they are simply sent. When you signal a message, you indicate only which message is to be signaled, not (also) to which task the message is "sent".

Tasks that wait a message wait on it on a priority basis ... i.e. if you call OS_WaitMsg(msgP) in two different tasks, when you signal the message, the higher-priority task will receive the message ...
