> Is our experience unique?
No, I'd say most of the Iframe and object condebase emails we get fall into one of two camps...

1) Harmless
2) Detected by the virus scanner as containing something like Nimda or Klez.

I guess the point of blocking Iframe and object codebase is to cover you between a new virus (like Nimda or Klez) emerging and your virus scanner vendor identifying a signature and distributing an update.
The latest releases of MS allow you to strip html from the emails which is a nice compromise.  Personally I strip html from all incoming affected messages, but block outgoing ones (stripped messages can look a little odd & not very professional - I'd rather educate our users)
