I currently have no problems with Yahoo Groups and Lynx. However,
versions of Lynx prior to 2.8.4 needed a COOKIE_LOOSE_INVALID_DOMAINS
setting in order to avoid being prompted, or to work at all when
using -dump or -source.
I did have to hack the Lynx source in order to be able to download
Yahoo Groups messages non-interactively with -source. This is the
subject of a message I sent to lynx-dev last month shortly before
I joined. The docs for the list say that non-member submissions
will be forwarded to the list if they are relevant, but I don't
think it's turned up, so if no one minds I'll repeat it.
