Is anyone else seeing a problem with disarming scripts within email 
resulting in messages containing ~200k of disarmed javascript? This 
looks like complete nonsense to the recipient.

The script contains lots of references to Dana<foo>, here is a typical 
first chunk:

var DanaShimData="var DSJsFuncs = 

Note that the lines are very long, sometimes over 5000 characters!

Is there any alternative to simply turning off script disarming? Seems 
drastic and possibly dangerous.
