I copied the form to the server where my site is hosted.  Also made it 
more generic, changing contact info and email reply to me to hide the 
innocent.  The php form can be found at:


and a text version at:


On my site the response is prit near instantaneous. FYI, the hosting 
service for my client where the problem occurs is 1and1.com, if it means 
anything to anyone.  If it helps I will make a backup, similar vanilla 
copy and place it on the problem site but pointing to my email...so's 
not to irritate my client.
