It does (unless you've found a bug).  Quoting from the user guide:

   Lynx recognizes and processes Refresh directives in META elements, but
   puts  up  a  labeled  link,  typically in the upper left corner of the
   display,  indicating  the number of seconds intended before a refresh,
   and   the   URL  for  the  refresh,  instead  of  making  the  request
   automatically  after  the  indicated  number  of  seconds. This allows
   people  using  a  braille  interface any amount of time to examine the
   current  document  before  activating  the  link  for the next URL. In

It might be worth adding that the use of Refresh for redirection is explicitly discouraged in the HTML specification.

Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
