I have installed the subscribe2 widget and plugin into a wordpress blog.  I have followed the installation instructions.  The subscribe menu item appears on the blog and a subscribe form appears when the menu item is selected but, it goes nowhere when you do a 'send'.  The admin forms for entering subscriber email addresses enters the email into the database.   the http://www.blog.lulyons.com/  

The blog is installed at a hoster.

I do not know how to fix this problem.

I am a total apache server with w/p but it sounds like your IIS server does not accept
http-post or perhaps it is a permissions problem.  Have you contacted your hosting service?

I have contacted the hoster with two trouble tickets now.  I will post additional information as soon as the hoster has responded to this.  Thank you.

Wordpress and Subscribe2 plugin do not play with IIS at Host Excellence.  I set up a Linux account this morning and in less than 10 minutes I had the blog and plugin running beautifully.  From the moment I tried setting this up on an IIS machine I was hampered.  The table creation code would not execute properly.  The sidebar would not adjust without code changes.  And the subscribe mail plugin would not work.  So I don't know if this is Host Excellence or simply an incompatibility with IIS.  Thank you for your help.
