ASP A trappable error (C0000005) error

We just got this error for the first time.  "A trappable error (C0000005) occurred in an external object. The script cannot continue running."  A classic asp page was trying to send a confirmation email when the page would bomb.  We tried restarting IIS but had to restart the server before it would work.  We can't keep rebooting a server every month, anybody have any ideas?  Never happened on the old box.

We switched a month ago to a new box

Old Box
IIS 5 on a server 2000 ADV server
4 GB of memory
9GB raid
Quad nic with each website on its own interface where as now all sites share the same IP in IIS 7.5


IIS 7.5
24GB memory
Server 2008 R2 64 bit
Quad Zeon processor
