This practically means that elinks takes over the terminal while your
MUA still runs and thus looks very strange. Try to put

	text/html; elinks %s

in your ~/.mailcap file if you want to view the page in elinks or

	text/html; elinks --dump %s ; copiousoutput

if you want to view the page in the MUA (assuming it reads ~/.mailcap).
