As TD commented, perhaps your question concerns Mutt,
which does mail rather the way Lynx handles the Internet.
Anyway, I recommend Mutt for straightforward configurable mail-handling.

To send in-coming mail to different folders, you can use Procmail.
You can also tell Mutt that you subscribe to various mailing-lists,
which helps it handle them for you.

If this is the kind of thing you want help with, let us know.
'lynx-dev' is strictly for Lynx users
-- I don't know if there's anything similar for Mutt -- ,
but you might get offers of help off-list & I'll see what I can do myself.
