I tested it and it works with sendmail.

That's what the test output below confirms...

Did you try to edit lynx.cfg and replace sendmail with exim?


I'm only using Gnu/Linux PCs.

This is the comparative test I just have done:

$ Comparing lynx.cfg: looking for exim or sendmail lines  in both cfg files;
first the old one, v2.8.4 under Sarge Debian,
then the new one, v2.8.5 on Etch Debian.
If someone see the difference I will appreciate he should tell me what it is
and why does the Sarge Lynx works with that same config using postfix or
and Etch doesn't works using exim?
(starfish = Debian Sarge machine)

Not all features (ignoring lynx) that worked with Sarge work with Etch...

$ grep -i exim lynx.cfg_starfish
No any exim line

$ grep -i exim /etc/lynx.cfg
Idem no any exim line

The other mailers typically provide a compatibility feature for sendmail.

If that is missing, it won't work.   lynx.cfg provides places to update
and make the appropriate path- and option-substitutions.  Even if you
cannot edit the system's lynx.cfg, you can always customize lynx in your
personal account.
