   Don't lick your mouse.  That's gross.

   You might want to try urlview, bound to Ctrl-B in mutt by default.  It's a
   screen-oriented program for extracting URLs from text files, putting
   them in a menu, and letting you run a command to view a specific item.

   If you're on a FreeBSD system, it's in /usr/ports/textproc/urlview.
