For lynx and SSL see:

These are slightly out of date, but still helpful. Lynx should be built
with openssl rather than SSLeay. References to are no
longer valid, and should be replaced with the new URL at

For lynx to mail comments, the mailer needs to be specified in lynx.cfg
under SYSTEM_MAIL. This is done via an outside program after lynx
prepares the message. The comments are usually "mailto:"; URLs.

For the third question, I am not sure what you mean by a "chat
environment". If you mean irc, I don't think that lynx has any irc
