What he means (I think — I occasionally experience a similar problem)
is that content served with a “Content-Encoding: gzip” header should
be decompressed by lynx before being saved by the (D)ownload process
(or passed to a DOWNLOADER utility).

Stéphane, I actually don’t block Googlemail, they’re just too utterly
stupid to successfully deliver to me (or anyone else using Greylisting
and not whitelisting their ranges). Same for a few other providers such
as Hotmail. Some spammers (Yahoo) I do block.
