First, put sendmail.exe somewhere in you path.  It will make life easier.
Next, put this line in lynx.cfg.  (It doesn't matter where, the top would 
be fine.)

SYSTEM_MAIL:sendmail -f address@hidden -h -r 


; To UNSUBSCRIBE:  Send a mail message to address@hidden
;                  with "unsubscribe lynx-dev" (without the
;                  quotation marks) on a line by itself.
