          You can use the LoadVars class

          var myLv:LoadVars = new LoadVars();

          Then where you have the submit action... eg.

          submitButton.onPress = function() {
          myLv.email = email_Tf.text; //email_Tf.text is the text field for email etc.
          myLv.name= name_Tf.text;
          //etc
          //send the data and send response to browser
          myLv.send("contactus.php","_self","POST"); //or GET


          }

          Alternative: if you want to stay on the same page and have flash receive the response itself, use myLv.sendAndLoad - in this case you need another LoadVars instance to receive the response from the server
