I have a form on an HTML page that is used to request a quote or other information from a company.  (I created this form to help out a friend who designed the site.)  The html page sends the data to a file called process.php which sends the data via email to the company.  The page works fine on my own web server (running Windows 2003) but now that it is on the company's host (Apache), I get the following error:
Method Not Allowed
The requested method POST is not allowed for the URL /quote.htm.
Apache/1.3.29 Server at Port 80

The host service has said "Our servers do allow PHP forms. I have checked the zone files and other files related to Rain Guard. Everything looks okay from our end."

I know little about PHP and have gotten this form to work on other sites by simply modifying the fields that get passed to the process page, which are then sent in the email.  This code is working on the other sites I've used it on.  I'd appreciate any help on how to fix this problem.

Again, thanks in advance!
