The automatic offering of the `Cc:' prompt is not particularly desirable
in public access accounts.  In my case I want to funnel questions and
requests to one person using a form, eg:
        <FORM METHOD="post" ENCTYPE="text/plain"
                TITLE="Press [RET] to send message, ^G to cancel.">
but Lynx offers a Cc: prompt automatically.  This means that the person
using the form has to know to [enter an e-mail address and] hit return
to send a message.  I cannot assume that the person using the form even
knows what `CC' means (My students certainly don't.).  Therefore, I want
to make the process as simple as possible, and at the same time not add
an ounce more of strain to my overworked server.  I have also been thinking
of how to block the `Subject:' prompt, but as you see above, I have found
a use for it.

; To UNSUBSCRIBE:  Send a mail message to address@hidden

;                  quotation marks) on a line by itself.
