lynx-dev Authentication problem

I'm new in this list. My problem now is that I am making certain
services to our www-server which should be Lynx compatible. 

The exapmle service is a web based POP-mail reader. There is a CGI
program that requires authentication from the browser (sends header:
HTTP/1.0 401 Unauthorized). After that the service uses this
information sent by browser to identify the user (uses them as POP
userid and pwd). 

This works fine with Netsc and IE. They continue sending the 
authentication informatios as long as we stay in a same directory. 
But Lynx not. I sends this information to CGI-program, but when CGI 
program redirects it to an other document in the same directory it 
will not send it any more.

The Lynx version is 2.7.2

If you want more information I will explain. Please give some advice, 
I need thsi Lynx connection!

thank you
