We're sorry, but there is nothing like a "QMail Health" sensor. There are some sensors though, that might be interesting here:

The IMAP sensor and the POP3 sensor can be used to monitor an inbox.

There are two Email Roundtripsensors, too. Roundtrip IMAP and Roundtrip POP3 will send an Email via SMPT and try to receive it.

PRTG also does have some generic sensors, that can be customized for your needs. If the tool offers an XML-File, you can for example use Http XML/Rest Value sensor to read data from that xml.

Here is an article, that might help you.

You will have to edit it, so it will perform the commands you need, but it will hopefully show you, how to integrate a custom ssh script into PRTG.
