I have recently published my website www.benshawswestern.co.uk onto Tiscali. Everything is working correctly apart from the 2 feedback forms that I have on the site.

I have followed all instructions on how to create these and they still do not work.

I want the forms to send me an e-mail to a seperate address e-g contact form to contactbs@tiscali.co.uk, and eorder form to eorder@tiscali.co.uk

When I fill in the information on the live website I get the following message -

Cannot run the FrontPage Server Extensions on this page "http://www.benshawswestern.co.uk/enter_order_details_below_in_the_html"

Tiscali do not seem to want to help, so can anyone advise.

Code as follows

<form method="POST" action="--WEBBOT-SELF--" onSubmit="location.href='_derived/nortbots.htm';return false;" webbot-onSubmit>
      <!--webbot bot="SaveResults" U-File="_private/feedback.txt" S-Format="TEXT/PRE" S-Label-Fields="TRUE" B-Reverse-Chronology="FALSE" S-Builtin-Fields startspan B-Email-Label-Fields="TRUE" S-Email-Address="contactbs@tiscali.co.uk" S-Email-Format="TEXT/PRE" --><input TYPE="hidden" NAME="VTI-GROUP" VALUE="0"><!--webbot bot="SaveResults" endspan i-checksum="43374" -->

Make sure that the _private folder has the correct anonymous write permissions.  Or try to take that out & see what you get.  Ask your hosting company to re-install the FP extensions as well.  

Also make sure that it is OK for that e-mail address that you are using to be used on the server.  Some servers require the host email (you@benshawswestern.co.uk) to be used.

This looks a little odd:
<form method="POST" action="--WEBBOT-SELF--" onSubmit="location.href='_derived/nortbots.htm';return false;" webbot-onSubmit>

Try just this:
<form method="POST" action="--WEBBOT-SELF--">
