I guess this is one I compiled?  Was it from

Not sure how to do that; suggestions?

Any changes to the readme file are welcome.  I have a note in mine that
sendmail doesn't work.

I think the #defines in LYMail need a lot of work; I have not been able
to give it much attention unfortunately.  The logical steps to allow
user-defined mailer in all environments are complex. I'd like to have
one lynx.cfg entry instead of the 2 we have now (system_mail and
system_mail_flags), and have lynx figure out based on the mailer
whether it had to add headers, etc.

I don't know what you mean by stripped.  The binary I built for dev.10
is about 1.1MB.  Seems pretty small for what it does.  I haven't seen
my version crash, either, although I only use it for fairly simple web
pages generally.
