there's a workaround for's webinterface:  i just fill in
spaces for the filename of attachments to tell gmx' CGI that i don;t
want to attach anything, and then gmx works, but doesn't
allow any submitting of forms.  alas, their HTML is very hacky, i
don't know if it conforms to standards enough.  you said you tested
lynx against the W3 validator.  i bet fastmail would flunk that test.

i tell you all this because it might be neccessary to get accounts at
both and to check thoroughly if the traces and the
sites HTML don;t reveil the cause of the problem.  both sites offer
english, but it seems tedious to having to go through the procedures
just to fix lynx, especially since both sites are certainly not
conformant 100%.

i should think a W3C validated lynx should be enough, but there's
always the difference between this and the wild :(
