Actually, I am still trying to figure this out when I get time.  What I
did was:
phpmail: "| lynx -dump > /pathto/your/php/script"

But the problem is nothing appears to be capture in the script.  Or rather
in what format does this mail arrive.  I even tried to write it to a file
but nothing is written.
