using 2-8-3dev.14 w/o SSL & entering  g , then ,
i get the following series of messages (in reverse order):

  1. Data transfer complete
  2. HTTP/1.1 200 OK
  3. HTTP request sent; waiting for response.
  4. Sending HTTP request.
  5. Making HTTP connection to
  6. Looking up
  7. HTTP/1.1 302 Redirected
  8. HTTP request sent; waiting for response.
  9. Sending HTTP request.
  10. Making HTTP connection to
  11. Looking up

however, somewhere in there i also get the (unlisted) message:

  Accept invalid cookie
   for '' ;

if i answer `y' (usually, i reject all cookies w/o thinking), i get: cookie: Browse=Succes
   Allow? (Y/N/Always/neVer) ;
if i answer `v', i get what appears to be the Hotmail start page: ;

the same happens if i answer `n' initially.

there are  3 lines  of JS AD FIN in the source.

BTW there does appear to be a bug in Lynx here:
it's not recording the cookie messages in the  lynxmessages:  list.
