Help with Kirupa Email form

I have just started using the kirupa email form in flash.
The form is working and I recieve the email but it takes over three minutes to loadVars to the php script and then be tansfered to the next frame.
Do you know what is going on?
I have another formmail script for html that works very quickly on my server and your example is working very quickly for me.
Any insite would be apprecited.
On an unrelated issue…
can I add the ui components to the form movie clip and pass variables such a check boxes by setting the parameters correctly…anything I should know about this.
