OT html2text

I tried, lynx will not run from a cron job, it will complain "Your
terminal lacks the ability to clear the screen or position the cursor."
and do nothing.

I also tried starting screen from cron, then executing
lynx and have everything return but screen will complain too "$HOME must
match passwd entry for multiuser screens."

Think the best solution will be to have it run through the html2text
filter of Mailscanner. Can it be invoked from the commandline?
