   # COOKIE_ACCEPT_DOMAINS and COOKIE_REJECT_DOMAINS are comma-delimited lists
   # of domains from which Lynx should automatically accept or reject cookies
   # without asking for confirmation.  If the same domain is specified in both
   # lists, rejection will take precedence.
   # Note that in order to match cookies, domains have to be spelled out exactly
   # in the form in which they would appear on the Cookie Jar page (case is
   # insignificant).  They are not wildcards.  Domains that apply to more than
   # one host have a leading '.', but have to match *the cookie's* domain
   # exactly.

You can inspect your cookie jar with ctrl-k to get the right spelling
of the domains.
