Spooler Service: The message delivery spooler service manages the queue of messages waiting to be delivered. It monitors conditions and can speed up or slow down based on mail volume and mail server response times.
Monitor Service: This checks the installed Alligate services to ensure high quality of service. It will check each critical service every 60 seconds to make sure it is running and responding properly. If a problem is detected, it will automatically start a quick diagnostic to see if it can determine whether the service needs to be shutdown and restarted.

When starting up the SMTP service, you will need to also start the Monitor service manually. The monitor service records it's activities in the ..\Alligate\Logs directory.
