I use Dreamweaver 8 to edit the page.

I have updated the enquiry page form and tested it but it doesn't work.

I Put the old form back on the website and now that doesn't work. I get an error 405. What has gone wrong?

Code for new page is
[have deleted a number of fields]:

<script type="text/javascript">
var gaJsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ? "https://ssl." : "http://www.");
document.write(unescape("%3Cscript src='" + gaJsHost + "google-analytics.com/ga.js' type='text/javascript'%3E%3C/script%3E"));
<script type="text/javascript">
var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker("sample");
<body bgcolor="#0066CC" topmargin="0" leftmargin="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0">

<td align="left" bgcolor="#003399" width="25">
<img src="spacer.gif" width="25" height="2">

<span class="style8">Dr</span>
<input name="Dr" type="radio" value="Dr" />&nbsp;

<span class="style8"> Rev </span>
<input name="Rev" type="radio" value="Rev" />

<div align="center" colspan="2">
<INPUT TYPE="SUBMIT" NAME="submit" VALUE="- Submit form -" SIZE="25">&nbsp;&nbsp;
<INPUT TYPE="RESET" NAME="reset" VALUE="- Reset form. -" SIZE="25">

Hope you can help.

welcome to WebmasterWorld, howdoi10!

a 405 status code means "method not allowed" and if I had to guess something in your configuration or programmng is preventing the form2email.pl script from accepting HTTP POST Requests.
