Eureka!!  My shell wants quotes.
   ` echo "" ' does the trick.  And now I can READ mail like never before.
Thank you, Jim!

Others who will be trying this idea for reading mail folders with a lynxcgi,
you may want to keep Jim's way of setting the environment variable for the
path.  Shortcutting to ` ~/ ' didn't work for me, although ` ./ ' did.

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