I am trying to increase the usefulness of the warning and critical alert 
messages that are triggered by the exchange system monitor (Exch2K).

[background info...]
Set warning and critical levels: "Exchange Systems Mangager"->"Administrative 
Groups"->[ADMINISTRATIVE GROUPNAME]->"Servers"->[SERVERNAME]->"Properties 
Notification settings: "Exchange Systems Mangager"->"Tools"->"Monitoring and 

Right now, i have a pretty basic setup.  I using ESM to monitor the queues, 
available disk space, CPU usage, ect...  and then when a status change is 
detected on a machine (warning or critical) it sends out pretty much the 
standard email.

my question is this:

are there other variables that can be added to the notification messages other 
than the standard %TargetInstance.QueuesStateString%, %TargetInstance.Name%, 
ect. that are already in the default message?  ..and if so, what are they?

essentially, what i am really looking for is a way to, for example, not only 
know that the message queue is in a "WARNING" state, but to also know what the 
current number of queued messages is, how long the queue has been growing, the 
size of the queue, ect...

..just a little more info other than just "WARNING", which obviously isnt too 

any information is appreciated.
