What your going to find with PPM, is that some modules will be package with a bunch of other modules under a common title, or even as a bundle. You may have to do some research and see where they might be included in. Unfortunately, as has been noted before, PPM seems to not include an exact mirror of CPAN. I have found it missing modules that I needed and it gets rather frustrating.

You could always try writing to ActiveState to see if they could include the module, or even tell you if its part of a package (and which one), but I don't know the response time, if you'll even get one.

Personally, if you are able to, develop on Linux or Unix as you have the entirety of CPAN at your fingertips and aren't limited by what Active State deems as modules that should or should not be included.

Regards,

Jeff

use MIME::Lite instead of Email::Reply. They appear to be very similar but MIME::Lite is a very commonly used module (and better documented) where as Email::Reply is not.
