If you mean that the mail content is in html, if you hit 'v' you get the
list of attachments.  Arrow down to the html version and hit enter.
Mutt should start up lynx for you (if you're in a VT) or whatever
browser if you're in X (never tried that).

If you mean that plain-text emails include http://... type references,
just open up another VT and fire up lynx.
