ASP v1.1 mailer error: 'failed to connect to server', only sometimes..

A client has setup a simple test.aspx mail script, he reports that it works
sometimes, othertimes he receives the error below. What could cause the
script to work sometimes but not others? No bounce back messages, just 'The
transport failed to connect to the server'

Script:
----------------------------------------
Here's the code behind for the test.aspx:
Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
'Put user code to initialize the page here
SendEmail(to@hisdomain.com, "info@fromdomain.com", "subject", "body",
Mail.MailFormat.Html, Mail.MailPriority.Normal)
End Sub

Private Sub SendEmail(ByVal TO_ADDRESS As String, ByVal FROM_ADDRESS As
String, ByVal SUBJECT As String, ByVal BODY As String, ByVal BODY_FORMAT As
System.Web.Mail.MailFormat, ByVal PRIORITY As System.Web.Mail.MailPriority,
Optional ByVal CC_ADDRESS As String = "", Optional ByVal BCC_ADDRESS As
String = "")
'Send an email via the framework
'Required params are passed into this sub
Dim objMail As New System.Web.Mail.MailMessage
objMail.To = TO_ADDRESS
objMail.Cc = CC_ADDRESS
objMail.Bcc = BCC_ADDRESS
objMail.From = FROM_ADDRESS
objMail.BodyFormat = BODY_FORMAT
objMail.Priority = PRIORITY
objMail.Subject = SUBJECT
objMail.Body = BODY
System.Web.Mail.SmtpMail.SmtpServer =
ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("SMTP_IP_ADDRESS ")
System.Web.Mail.SmtpMail.Send(objMail)
End Sub

----------------------------------------
