Since I don't actually know what your requirements are for the setup 
you're wanting to get going (as your initial message just specified an 
webmail system in perl), I will just assume that you want to use 
mod_perl strictly for performance and not any other reason.

So, if that is right and speed is what you're concerned about, you can 
optionally use CGI::SpeedyCGI with openwebmail. I initially wasn't using 
this on my install, but once I got it going I noticed a big difference.

"Openwebmail can get almost 5x to 10x speedup when running with 
SpeedyCGI. You can get a quite reactive openwebmail systems on a very 
old P133 machine :)"
