  macro pager ,\Cb |urlview\n "Extract a URL, and queue for later download"

now use CTRL-B to call up on urlview to parse the message for URLs..
it will give you a menu for them all.  type in digits for the
link number, hit on ENTER to select it, now you can edit the URL,
hit ENTER again to feed it to your browser.  pretty nifty, eh? :)

as for seeing the *raw* data of the message, use 'e' in the index:

  key:         e
  command:     edit-or-view-raw-message
  description: edit the raw message if the mailbox
               is not read-only, otherwise view it
