You're using a method call as if it's a delegate - and you needn't worry about the threadpool at all.

It should be sufficient to make the call
eu.SendEmailAsync("daddy longlegs", "mcupryk@koretelematics.com")
directly in the timer event without worrying about the threadpool, because your implementation of that method.

The BeginInvoke method of delegates invokes the delegate using a ThreadPool thread automatically - you don't need to supply that logic.
