[David, I am replying on the list so others will know what I did and didn't

I have in the past heard that people did that.  I haven't.

Who here has?

There is as I understand it no practical way to use Lynx as your mail program
in the sense of collecting mail from a POP3 account and reading and replying
with Lynx.  On the other hand, if you open up an account on a website that
offers you a mailbox on their website, you can deal with the website with Lynx
and send and receive mail that way.  For more information see

Web-Based Email -- Benefits and Barriers

I found that reference under "general information" in the lynx FAQ which starts

<> and
is listed in the H)elp pages of recent Lynx distributions.

Not that I know.

I have yet to hear much good about a free screen reader unless you are on DOS. 
And I'm not advocating that.  Jaws for DOS is free, for example.

The websites and groups listed at Trace will give you more and better
information on this than I could.

Your mail came from Opera.  Have you got the RealPlayer running in Opera?
