        You're not the only one, but it can be handled in the printer
definition/print command.

You can do this in your printer definition I have a small script that
allows lynx users to e-mail themselves the page they're viewing by    
selecting the correct printer:

So I have a printer defined as:

PRINTER:Mail to self with URL name:/bin/lprint %s %s:TRUE

And then the lprint command is the following script

export urlname file subject
mailx -v -s "$subject" $user < $file 

It should be simple enough to adapt soemthing like that for your

Doesn't need any change, just the right printer definition.
