OK, my advice is:

1.
to have one big try-catch on every thread, so basically the first thing a thread does is enter its try block. For the main thread that would be the static Main() method, for any other thread/ThreadPoolWorkItem/BackgroundWorker that would be the method you pass them; for asynchronous callbacks (Timers/SerialPorts/other input-output) that would be the handlers you provide.

All the above are safety nets, they don't solve any problem your app may encounter, but at least they would inform you, the developer.

2.
add lots of logging, either to a file or to a Console (not to EventViewer, not to the GUI); have each line include current time (up to the millisecond if relevant) the ManagedThreadId, one text message, and some relevant data (such as mail count).
If logging to file, I tend to use File.AppendText, so basically the file is closed all the time, and a crash does not keep me from reading the most recent messages.

Smile | :)
