Awfully sorry for this leaked test...

Still, it's relevant.  How'd you like implementing Leonid's idea
from <>:

with *no* changes to lynx code, just a couple lynxcgi scripts and
a RULE redirection?  (That's what I was testing.)

Pick any CGI e-mail package, of the many that are publically available.
Install it as a local lynxcgi script(s).  Modify slightly if there
are hardwired assumptions about using "real" CGI (like hardwired "http:"/
"https:" absolute URLs).
Redirect mailto:* to a page with a form including a textarea for entering
the message body, with action pointing to the CGI e-mail package's
script that invokes sendmail.  That's basically all.

No lynxexec/lynxprog.  Stuff like "...&subject=...&cc=..." from the
mailto URL can get passed to the page for composing (a lynxcgi script)
in the usual CGI way, with special characters already URL-escaped
(as they should be in mailto URLs).
