You can simply forward your email to email@example.com. This will turn your email into a web page similar to this: http://snipek.com/web/20ce6e55-e379-46c3-9652-f95251061292 Then you can share the URL of your email messages to your friends via email, IM or social media.
There is no Gmail shortcut to check for new mail in Gmail. I guess Google thinks new e-mails appear immediately in the ajax-based UI. Since it's not the case (I had the exact same issue as yours), I use my browser shortcut to reload the page (ctrl+R or F5). I'm aware this is not optimal as reload the whole page wastes resources.
