I followed the steps in KB317680 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/317680 to setup an email disclaimer on outgoing SMTP email.  Emails that are sent in plain text show the disclaimer fine.  Emails sent in HTML format do not show the disclaimer.  Attached is the EventSinkScript.vbs.  Any ideas on why this is not working?
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="VBScript">
Sub ISMTPOnArrival_OnArrival(ByVal Msg, EventStatus)
   TextDisclaimer = vbCrLf & "Security Warning:  This message is being sent over an insecure medium.  Recipients should not reply to this message with sensitive or confidential account information."
 
   HTMLDisclaimer = "<p></p><p>Security Warning:  This message is being sent over an insecure medium.  Recipients should not reply to this message with sensitive or confidential account information."
 
   If Msg.HTMLBody <> "" Then
      'Search for the "</body>" tag and insert our disclaimer before that tag.
      pos = InStr(1, Msg.HTMLBody, "</body>", vbTextCompare)
      szPartI = Left(Msg.HTMLBody, pos - 1)
      szPartII = Right(Msg.HTMLBody, Len(Msg.HTMLBody) - (pos - 1))
      Msg.HTMLBody = szPartI + HTMLDisclaimer + szPartII
   End If
 
   If Msg.TextBody <> "" Then
      Msg.TextBody = Msg.TextBody & vbCrLf & TextDisclaimer & vbCrLf
   End If
    
   'Commit the content changes to the transport ADO Stream object.
   Msg.DataSource.Save ' Commit the changes into the transport Stream
 
   EventStatus = cdoRunNextSink
End Sub
</SCRIPT>

If you want some reasonably priced software that has great features to handle this for you, try Exclaimer Mail Utilities.  It's fairly brainless, works well, and is extremely powerful.

I gave up on trying to use my own sinks a couple of years ago and fell in love with these guys at Exclaimer.

Have you tried simply using the canned Microsoft sink?
This would at least verify that it isn't anything that YOU did to the vb code - editing error for instance.

You ran both the following lines:

cscript smtpreg.vbs /add 1 onarrival SMTPScriptingHost CDO.SS_SMTPOnArrivalSink "mail from=*@your-domain-here.com"

cscript smtpreg.vbs /setprop 1 onarrival SMTPScriptingHost Sink ScriptName "C:\EventSinkScript.vbs"
and received no errors upon completion of both commands (careful about the path to YOUR copy of the MS VBS script).

If you're using Outlook to send your email to an exchange server (where you're doing the sink), it may not work.  But there is a workaround:

Have you tried Outlook Express?

Microsoft has multiple ways of doing things and it looks like you used this method
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=317680

Well, here's another way to do it.

If at first you don't succeed, try it from another angle.

I think you may have left out a </P> tag at the end of you HTML text - try it with a </P> at the end and it should work.
