Hi-

I am just noticing that this is the situation that is resulting by
uninstalling emacs-w32 to find the problem.

Here is the path that makes sense to cygwin but not windows:

I doctored the path so you could see the problem in the url:

file:///cygdrive/c/cygwin64/tmp/mu4e-4212p70.html

I need cygwin to look there:

The actual path that comes up in the browser is this and windows doesn't
recognize this:

file:///tmp/mu4e-4212p70.html

I don't know anything about mu4e. But the browse-url function in Cygwin's emacs (whether emacs-w32 or another flavor) handles URLs of the form file:///path/to/something.html without a problem. It does this by using Cygwin's cygstart utility. See the definition of browse-url-default-windows-browser in browse-url.el. Maybe mu4e could do something similar.
