Re: Apache web server POSTing.

I've already been baffled by this Sue...  Here's what's basically in my

<Directory />
AllowOverride None
Options None
Order deny,allow
deny from all

<Directory /home/*>
Options All
AllowOverride FileInfo
order allow,deny
allow from all

<Limit GET POST>
Options All

And of course, the rest of the stuff like /var/www - default things.
However the error still persists being:

Method not implemented

POST to /~matt/cgi-bin/Formmail/formmail.pl not supported.

Sooooooooo, how does one _get_ is supported?  It's got me baffled! :-)  Has
anyone got any ideas? :)
