What Windows are you running, precisely?

Do you have Real Player installed, and if you give it the URL for ACB radio,
for example, in the Real Player directly, does it play?

Don't hold your breath for Lynx to become a full-function shell in Windows
complete with mail.  This has been a frequent request long term and hasn't
happened yet.  You can install a mail tool via External if you get really
facile with the installation, for easy movement into your mail tool from a Lynx

Look into Mutt and competitors for a text-based mailer.  I don't know how much
it requires you to create some sort of mini-Linux environment, but these things
are available such as Cygwin.

Or as you are a ham, you may be geek enough to go all the way to Emacs which
really does run as a shell and do everything, in its way.  If you are
VI-oriented, there is VIM.


Are you running in Windows, and exactly what do you have in your mailcap file,
what is the exact filepath to it?  Is there anything you did to help Lynx find
the mailcap file?
