I totally forgot about this one. In our case everything between the
script tags was still there displayed as text by some viewers.

Nortel changed their firmware, I guess they stopped inserting that
code, and the problem is gone for us. I think that Nortel had a valid
point about how MailScanner is doing the disarming (not HTML
compliant?) but on the other hand no one else seems to have been hit
with it which is strange. If I knew Perl better I would look into it
myself but I'm next to useless at it I'm afraid. :-(
