We need to monitor SMTP ques on the IIS SMTP service.
We need to know if the que is full, and mailflow stoped.

How can we monitor this, and what tool do we need to use

This is a standalone SMTP Service, no exchange is installed on the server only the IIS SMTP service that monitors the content of SMTP trafic

    Anything that can watch WMI data will be able to monitor that for you. So something like WhatsupGold, for example.
    You can do monitoring using perfmon, but of course the problem you have is how do you get alerts to email not flowing. You can't exactly get the application to email you. Therefore it will need to be a third party application that can monitor WMI or Perfmon counters.
