no idea how you deal with url's in vim or xterm, but in mutt you can use
urlview (you'll need to apt-get install it) to extract url's and fire up
a browser. there's some config involved; the best way to get the details
is press f1 while in mutt, and then /urlview. once you've done the
config, you hit ^b, while in mutt's pager,  to activate urlview.
