HI
Yesterday, W3SVC service stoped suddently and at the same time SMTPSVC Service stoped aswell at the Same time!!!. so as a result user was unable to open internal report and email was bouncing back. so i had to restart the Server. after that everything was running fine .



 Is there any software free ( would be first choice) or paid which will check if Exchange is receiving email or not or Every services is running fine or not. I want to know before user complain.

The other poweful monitoring software is Microsoft Operation Manager 2005, MOM 2005 can monitor most of the MS software with management pack installed.

You can also use ExMon to view the exchange services. Here is the link. And it is Free.

Hi Karl, I tryed your link, but that software does not give any option to check if Exchange is running fine or not( Server is receiving email and transporting email to receipt propery or if there is any error in exchange server)

I realize that this question is a bit old... but thought I'd answer anyhow.

Since you have an SBS you don't need any third-party software to do this.  All you need to do is run the Configure Monitoring Wizard and if you want to be notified of any service failing enter a valid external email address (or your cell phone's SMS address: ie, 1234567890@vtext.com) to receive instant alerts.  They don't get sent through Exchange so if email fails you will still get an alert.
