I think the OP means HTTP links, i.e. URLs in mails.

Since you're on Debian, I'd suggest apt-get install urlview and add
the urlview and add the config to your muttrc like the one in present
in /usr/share/doc/mutt/examples/sample.muttrc.gz, which is:

macro index \cb "<pipe-message> urlview<Enter>"	# simulate the old browse-url function
