I bought a new Lipo battery and wasn't expecting to receive it as soon as I did in the mail. Consequently, I left it in the mailbox overnight. Weather was down to 20 degrees. Will this have ruined my new lipo?
I think it will be fine. Just make sure its room temp when you charge it up. I've heard of people storing lipos in a freezer (don't know why and I don't reccomend it), but I have heard that before.

3.85v/cell and in the fridge.
I have had a speed run set that have been at storage for 6 months in there... they are still at 3.85v/cell.
"Even when not being used, the internal components slowly corrode over time, and cool temperatures can slow down this process."
I do not, however, charge or use my batteries while they are cold. Using LiPo's while they are cold is hard on them, so I let them warm up to room temp before I charge them for use.
