Receive Alerts when Information Store Dismounts

Our company has 30+ Exchange 2003 servers (Standard and Enterprise) in various locations.  From time to time, the Information Store on a server may dismount for no apparent reason.  The services may still be running while the store is down.  We get notified when our users cannot connect via Outlook.

Is there any freeware out there or anything built into Exchange that can notify us?  I realize if the store is down it obviously can't send its own email, but I'd be glad to setup a monitoring station that can query WMI, etc.  

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks.
