[SOLVED] Using Lynx text browser with Zimbra mail
Does the text browser lynx work well with Zimbra mail?
I'm being forced to convert from the compact text client mutt
Is Zimbra friendly to the blind and those who are mouseless?

Lynx text browser with Zimbra mail works!. And mutt barks!
Ok, Lynx works, even in the Blynx (blind lynx) version.
To make it look better, I have to change the defaults (HTML) view,
and drop the show text of message in header display.
I was shocked!! to see spelling mistakes in the on-line Preferences
set up. [ Diplay instead of Display, color instead of colour ]
Odd that d or delete a message brings up the message list again rather than just move to next message.
But better than that I can go back to mutt, the elm successor and great email client.

And it works!! Mutt barks!
In this system there is a (dot)mutt directory in the root
and in the .mutt directory is the muttrc file, filled mostly with
"ignore header" commands, a few aliases, and such things as view any
HTML mail with Lynx, etc.
I'm very happy. I can use mutt, or lynx or some other browser to wander around my mail.
Mutt is what I want and my fingers know all the key commands.:D
