How do I monitor the outbound Queue length (using perfmon) of the imc, if all mail is set to forward to a smart host?

I have tried monitoring the "MSExchangeMTA Connections" object &  "Queue Length" counter for the IMC but this never seems to grow above zero, is this because there is currently no problem with the smart host, therefore the queue never grows?

Thanks Nitin, but all your solutions are for Exchange 2003 not Exchange 5.5.

It actually turns out I the perfmon counter MSExchangeIMC was missing. I managed to add this again and then I was able to monitor the queues correctly.

Think I made a mistake in closing this question. Since I managed to resolve this myself, I would like my points refunded minus 20 points for gupnit for pointing me in the right direction.

Thanks,
