Failure sending consecutive emails from .NET web portal

Hello everyone,

Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise
.NET 3.5
IIS 7.5

We are having an issue where in one of our ASPX pages, we send an email confirmation after the user clicks a button.  The first attempt is always successful, but on subsequent attempts within a short time span, the caught error is "Email Server: Failure sending mail.".  I have posted the function we use to send these emails below.

My questions are:
1)  is there something within the code that is causing the errors after the first attempt
2)  is there any log files, or logging that can be done to acquire more information regarding the failure (error message is not too helpful)
3)  is there possibly a better suited .NET class we can use to send these emails

Thanks in advance for any guidance,

Oliver

        Public Shared Sub SendGenericEmail(ByVal emailAddress As String, ByVal emailSubject As String, ByVal emailBody As String, _
                                           ByVal attachmentPath As String)

            Dim oSMTP As New System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient
            Dim replaceFields As New ListDictionary()
            Dim message As New MailDefinition()

            message.Subject = emailSubject
            message.IsBodyHtml = True

            Dim oMessage As New MailMessage()
            oMessage = message.CreateMailMessage(emailAddress, replaceFields, New LiteralControl())
            oMessage.DeliveryNotificationOptions = DeliveryNotificationOptions.OnFailure
            oMessage.ReplyTo = New MailAddress(DTHClassLibrary.DTH.StaticVariables.ReplyToAddress)
            oMessage.Body = emailBody
            If attachmentPath <> String.Empty Then
                oMessage.Attachments.Add(New Attachment(attachmentPath))
            End If

            ' Send the message
            Try
                oSMTP.Send(oMessage)
            Catch ex As Exception
                Throw ex
            End Try

        End Sub
