All you need to do is:

go to your command prompt

execute command:
echo %PATH%

Note one of the Perl's paths in the list:
e.g. C:\Perl\bin\

Create a Folder called "Mail" under that path:

Use the source of the module and save it as a text file with the name:

From this location, just save it as a text file with as a name

Run your script...

The easiest and probably the best method to install the module is to use ppm (Perl package manager).

ppm install Mail-Sender

This will download and install the module into its default/proper location (c:\perl\site\lib\Mail).  If you use sstouk's method, you'll probably also need to add a use lib statement to your script so that the module will be found.

use lib 'C:/perl/bin';
use Mail::Sender;

If you have problems with Mail::Sender, you can use Mime::Lite instead.
