pipe mutt message into vim

I'm unclear about pipes! I frequently wish to pipe the contents of a
message I'm reading in mutt into vim, edit the contents to a saved file
and then return to mutt.

I have simplistically tried from mutt "|" then "vim" from the mutt shell
prompt, which doesnt work. I guess I want to do the equivalent of 

cat < /tmp/xyz

but where xyz is the contents of the current message.

Before you ask, I do know how to save mutt messages!
