Remote site SMTP Monitoring software

Hi,

We are looking for a piece of software to keep track of our clients SMTP Servers, making sure they are all up and working effectively. We have tried two products but they lack email alerting which would be most beneficial.

Anyone know of any programs that would suit us?

Thanks

overkill unfortunately, all we require is a simple poll of our smtp servers and an email alert, so cost is a factor considering this is all we want from it.

Thanks though.

that looks to be installed on each server, thats not what we need.

We need a centrally managed bit of software that polls out to our client SMTP Servers without the need to install anything on their servers.

Basically so our server polls theirs to make sure SMTP is responsive.

I use Hounddog.

It will monitor the server itself, then I have their agent installed on my web server which will poll the client servers as well.
