Random "Index was outside the array" as a SmtpException

I am getting an exception randomly using the submit method shown below. The exception I am getting is:

Exception information:
    Exception type: System.Net.Mail.SmtpException
    Exception message: Failure sending mail.

Inner exception information (level 1):
    Exception type: System.IndexOutOfRangeException
    Exception message: Index was outside the bounds of the array.


My method looks like this:

public void Send(string from, List<string> to, string subject, string body, List<string> attachments)
    var email = new MailMessage();
    var server = new SmtpClient();

    // Add each mail property
    email.From = new MailAddress(from);
    foreach (var t in to)
    email.Subject = subject;
    email.IsBodyHtml = true;
    email.Body = body;
    foreach (var a in attachments)
        email.Attachments.Add(new Attachment(a));


Before calling this override, I check that the List and the attachment list have at least one value and that the value is valid.

The exception occurs on the sever.Send server.

This seems to be the same issue as this question about .NET 4.0 failing to send emails with large attachments . Microsoft has posted a bug fix here .
