I my limited experience with third party clients.  The third party
clients would not attempt to send a message unless the connection was
active.  If my server was down the as soon as it came up the messages
would start streaming in.  If they sent a message and did not get the
appropriate acknowledgment it would stay in the que.  If you are writing
  a client the hl7client has a property connected

  If hl7client.Connected Then
    // send message
  else ShowMessage('Not Connected to Server..');
