I am looking for a free application to run on one of my servers,  That will ping all the other servers on the network, and if it finds that one is not responding , it sends an email to me.   Now there is one catch I would like to find a free application to do this, does anyone have any ideas ?

Take a look at nagios.

I use it for servers and services.  

There are others out there too.

I've read some good things about ZENOSS and OPENsmart.

Another good one is Zenoss.

This is all done via SNMP and it's relatively easy to set up.
