Trying to setup email round-trip test in System Center Essentials 2010

I am currently using ipMonitor from Solar Winds for system monitoring but I am interested in SCE 2010. One of the tests that I use often in ipMonitor is a round-trip test for our email system because there are 4 layers emails must go through before delivery. An exchange account is configured for ipMonitor and I have a Gmail account configured for the other end. IpMonitor sends out a test email from its exchange account every 2 minutes and Gmail is configured to automatically forward all emails directly back to ipMonitor. If the reply is not received within 5 minutes an alert is issued. Is there a way to replicated this in SCE 2010?

If you are running Exchange 2007 or 2010 I think it's possible.
See this guide :
http://www.msexchange.org/articles_tutorials/exchange-server-2007/monitoring-operations/monitoring-exchange-2007-system-center-operations-manager-2007-part1.html

On the part 4 there is a note on reports :
Report Remote Mailflow Availability - Execute: Test-Mailflow (Remote) diagnostic cmdlet (Report Collection)

So if you run Exchange 2007 / 2010 I am sure it's possible.
Anyway , the SCE it's highly customizable and you can set it up to run scripts or run a program or perform some customized tests.
