Is there a cap on the pipe outside?
I hope this single wall pipe is inside not outside. Even then I would have gone with double walled for fire safety.

From your description, it is unclear weather the water is running inside or outside the chimney pipe. Assuming the water is running on the outside since the chimney has a cap, did you install a storm collar on the chimney? What type of flashing where the chimney penetrates the roof? And typically the top of the chimney needs to be 2 or 3 feet (some jurisdictions 4 feet) above anything within 10 feet (although this probably isn't causing your water problem).

How about a picture of your set up.
I'm no expert but looking at it from a logical stand point if the male side is down it would allow water to get in at every joint as it runs down the pipe.
I never use single wall pipe on any wood stove. After the first year all the finish is burned off and will start rusting from then on.

Did you run this pipe out a side wall then go up or is it straight up and out the roof?

While the stove is burning or sitting idle?

That is what I think also, condensation from stove not burning hot enough.
