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.
