qutebrowser allows pasting multiple URLs (like from a text file or so) to open
them all - which I find quite useful.

You might want to instead configure your terminal (or mutt, e.g. via
urlview/urlscan) so you can open links without copy-pasting them.

That's not the link I sent. You have some (Cisco)-piece rewriting incoming
mails. Seeing that the umw.edu also has thrown you off the mailing list because
of "spoofed mails", and it apparently intercepts your mails, I can really
recommend using something else.
