Is there an accessible ${ENVIRONMENT} variable set that could be
used to pass the temp file name of the page?  I didn't see one in
a glance at the User's Guide.

That's (the whole URL) what Lynx passes on.  Use a wrapper script
to parse out the address and give it to the MUA, along the lines
of, maybe:

        ADD=`echo $1 | cut -f2 -d:`
        ${HOME}/bin/mutt ${ADD}
