I tried using alpine connected to lynx to read this kind of webmail and couldn't locate any urls in the webmail. I asked on this list if there was anything that had been done to the formating of the webmail to make this happen and if there was anything that could be done about it to make this accessible to alpine using lynx as its web browser. That's what this has to do with lynx.

 What does this have to do with lynx?

I believe the OP is using a text only, non-web aware, email client, with Lynx used to handle HTML messages, and thinks that this is HTML, and is wondering why Lynx is ignoring all the links.

His last message is forwarding an example of email for which this setup is failing.

The problem is that the message isn't HTML. It's a plain text fallback, intended for web aware email clients where the user doesn't want to receive HTML email. (Moreover, the links are, correctly, placed in angle brackets, which, if forced to treat it as HTML, Lynx will ignore, as they contain unknown tags.
