Running the eseutil commands require the database to be offline. Do it after hours

mail.que isn't part of the Mailbox database, so running ESEUtil on it won't do anything to check consistency of the mail queue. Mail.que should generally be empty, so if it is having problems and getting larger, you'll want to shut down the transport service and replace the file by moving everything in the Queue folder to a different location and restarting transport. That will recreate the queues. Move info here, for examining the files: http://msexchangeguru.com/2011/06/02/mail-que/

That link just tells you what the files are and where. shut down the transport service, move the files, and start it up. See if that resolves your issues.
