My formmail script is not working

The form located at:-

http://mypcd-24356-001.dsvr.co.uk/

is not posting correctly????

I have definately got the formmail.pl file in the cgi-bin directory of my server with all the correct read/write/execute permissions set.
I have also used the formmail code for a different site on the same virtual server and it works.

Here is a dump of the first few lines of the formmail.pl


# $mailprog defines the location of your sendmail program on your unix
# system.

$mailprog = '/usr/sbin/sendmail';

# @referers allows forms to be located only on servers which are defined
# in this field.  This fixes a security hole in the last version which
# allowed anyone on any server to use your FormMail script.

@referers = ('mypcd-24356-001.dsvr.co.uk','212.69.200.57');

# $recipient_file is the location of a plain text file listing valid
# recipients of formmail emails.

$recipient_file = '/usr/local/etc/formmail_recipients';

# Done

Please DO NOT use Matt's formmail.  It is insecure, poorly written and not maintained.

Use the 100% compatible, secure, well written and maintained Formmail version from http://nms-cgi.sourceforge.net/
