There is a funny bug in Internet Explorer that causes IE to ignore custom error pages if the page is smaller than 512 bytes.

Sorted!
Now this could be the reason? this domain also had other domains pointing to it, no it was publishing on other domains, I removed the other domains from it and its now working, si I have to assume thats what was causing the problem?

ErrorDocument 404 /http://www.denholmvillage.co.uk/error.htm

uploaded in Fire FTP in ASCII mode

its like a standard windows error that we get, if we take the .htaccess file out it returns to the freeola error page...

The webpage cannot be found
HTTP 404
Most likely causes:
There might be a typing error in the address.
If you clicked on a link, it may be out of date.

What you can try:
Retype the address.

Go back to the previous page.

Go to www.denholmvillage.co.uk and look for the information you want.

More information

This error (HTTP 404 Not Found) means that Internet Explorer was able to connect to the website, but the page you wanted was not found. It's possible that the webpage is temporarily unavailable. Alternatively, the website might have changed or removed the webpage.

For more information about HTTP errors, see Help.

My guess would be you've made a typo ;)

Can you post the contents of your .htaccess file?
Also what does the IE error page say?
