It can be done using EXTERNALS.  If you compile lynx with USE_EXTERNALS,
you can define programs to handle various url types.  I use this in my
EXTERNAL:mailto:/home/lahvak/bin/mailtohandle %s:TRUE

When I am on a mailto link,  I press '.' and it starts maitohandle,
which is a shell script which extracts the address from the URL and
starts mutt.  Unfortunately,   it doesn't work with 'c' key.
