You probably already checked this...but make sure your registry still
has the perl reference to script mapping. If you reinstalled IIS, it
most likely wiped out this regestry entry which was put in PERL.

ameters...Script Map: : REG_SZ : c:\whatever_directory\perl.exe %s

I hope this helps and good luck!

I don't know about Windmail, but if it is any consulation
Formmail doesn't play either. Perhaps if we keep posting this
stuff some kind all knowing will (maybe even M$ will hear us)
come up with the magic formula, if any. Service/smervice, I
I'll try Active and see what they have to say, if anything.
