This sounds like something that belongs in the support forums (granted this
would be my first reply to this list, so that may be for others to decide).

I may have missed something looking at your code, however the problem looks
like the value you are using for your name attribute on the checkboxes.
To store multiple values, your name has to be in the format of
name="checkboxname[]" - the empty brackets let the processing script know
that it is
to accept an array of values, and not just an true/false value.

So, try putting a set of square brackets after the name of your checkbox
field and I'd assume you'll be good to go.
