I have been using URLVIEW to parse HTML URLS from emails in Mutt for a while but it is too difficult for many emails that have obscurified URLs (usually with some type of IP tracking). Ideally I should never need to click these URLs sometimes you need to.

Anyway the Arch Linux wiki suggests Curses::UI as a replacement that offers better link contexting and customization than URLVIEW.


But I cant figure out how to send my messages to it for parsing.

Has anyone been able to set up a macro for using Curses::UI?

I would also accept better alternatives. I tried urlscan. It works much better but very ugly and is no longer maintained.
