How can I get Perl via Email?

Henk P Penning* suggests that if you are in Europe you should try the following (if you are in Germany or the UK, you should probably use one of the servers listed above):
    Email: Send a message to '' containing:
     path your_email_address
     send help
     send PERL/perl5.0/INDEX
    The path-line may be omitted if your message contains a normal
    From:-line.  You will receive a help-file and an index of the
    directory that contains the Perl stuff.

If all else fails, mail to Larry usually suffices.
