this is always an interesting one .. Why?  well if you have large queue you may not get the emai!
I use a couple of powerscripts to log queue data and report the queue length.
So the best way would be to either log something to the eventlog and comb the event log for issues or use a GUI

I wrote this a while back and updated it last week.  Check this out, it might help? http://blogs.flaphead.dns2go.com/archive/2008/10/31/get-allqueuesgui-ps1-v1-5-24-october-2008.aspx

If you want it do some alerting, let me know and I can add it

Exchange 2007 has a really cr@ppy interface in the "toolbox" portion for viewing queues and it's a backwards set from Exchange 2003 :-(  That's why knocked up the script
