exchange

can I run eseutil/g or eseutil/k on our mailbox database to check any inconsistencies on mail.que. ( exchange 2007)

without dismounting database, or do I need to run this on transport database as my exchange transport service sometimes shutdown

I want to avoid running eseutil/p as then I need to bring my database down

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/

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

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.
