There'll be tags unknown to lynx in those urls. I don't know what if any
effect stripping those unknown tags out will have in terms of where you
end up when using any of those links. That being said, that could be a
useful exercise for this and similar mail in the future. I piped this to
urlview and urlscan and the file both of them produced had nothing in it.
If you get a rawstory email message the sizes of the messages are
consistently close to 2mb each. That's if you get them direct from
rawstory itself not if you send them anywhere else.
Earlier I tried to sign up for rawstory through a subscribe link and was

Does that make more sense?
For what it's worth, it's probably possible to use a script of some sort,
(probably a bash one) using tr or sed/awk to fix the links in the email to
make them usable by lynx again. I didn't keep the email in question, but I
am familiar with the <> substitutions, as I've seen those before, if the
original poster is interested, I could make an attempt to build such a
