Hi Karen,

I only tried accessing content with original messages and those had lots more clutter in them based on their normal 2mb+ sizes. It could be what needs to be done with these messages is to forward them from my gmail account to my panix account and then try reading them.

I am not sure what is happening for you, but I could access links in your example, being taken to the articles. My setup is at shellworld, I am using pine to read these emails, and Lynx is the browser that runs when I choose a link.
Are you accessing gmail in basic html?
To be sure, there is a grand deal of spoken clutter, but based on my own test I am wondering if the confusion lies with your gmail display instead?
Lynx had no trouble taking me to articles,  the ones I tried at least.

 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.

  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

  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
  contain unknown tags.
