| I'm trying to set up Mutt to use Lynx to view HTML mail.
| After googling for info, I tried seting up a .mailcap like this:
|     text/html; lynx %s; copiousoutput;
| but when I went to view an email, I was still stuck in Mutt.
| I suspended the program to do a ps, and saw this:
| #6:27am# /home/boo> ps
| 77561  p0  Ss     0:00.17 -tcsh (tcsh)
| 96620  p0  T      0:00.06 mutt -F /usr/home/boo/.Muttrc
| 96626  p0  T      0:00.00 sh -c lynx '/tmp/muttYYvC91'
| 96627  p0  T      0:00.08 lynx /tmp/muttYYvC91
| 96641  p0  R+     0:00.00 ps
| How to configure to make lynx display an email?
hmm - it's been quite a while since I did this - my .mailcap is different (and 
I use mutt):

text/html; lynx-cs -force_html -stdin

Nothing in my .muttrc refers to lynx, so mailcap seems the place to discuss.
