Yes but nobody is asking full supoort of news and e-mail, what I
understand is that if lynx is going to do e-mail it should do the basic
stuff (cc, bcc, etc), and it should in particular implement a way to
suspend your composition to change headers (like adding a person to the
To: field).

  I do not agree that lynx should provide "minimal features". Not everyone
has the external command enabled and mail is such a basic tool that there
should be way to open your mail program to compose and read mail while
being in lynx. I believe a feature like this is necessary.
