Thanks for the quick reply. I had the [X] prefer plain text box checked, so
I unchecked it to see what happens.
My URL viewers stopped at "firefox". so I added the _URL_ & to see if that
makes a difference.

You are probably reading a HTML message. Most mailers send the same
message in two forms, one the html message and another non-html form. If
you enable [X] Prefer Plain Text, then you will see the plain text form by
default, which will include the links, otherwise, you can press "A" while
reading the html message to display the plain text part.

I would have to see a message to tell you why this happened, but one hunch
could be that the url-viewers options is misconfigured. Mine is set to
URL-viewers = "/usr/bin/firefox _URL_ &"
