I receive some mails which are long and/or have a lot of interesting links, and I am not able to read those mails in one time. I can pin and/or snooze the mail to continue reading it later, but I would like to save at which page/line I was reading. Therefore my question is:

Is there a way to put some kind of bookmark in the mail such that I can later on continue reading where I was?

    Questions on applications or application features that are no longer available are off-topic for Web Applications as no one will ever be able to make use of the answers again. – ale Jul 8 '19 at 16:53
  • I agree, but this question was asked when the application (Google Inbox) existed. Furthermore, the question can be generalized; the given answer by JBalin, for example, is applicable to any e-mail application/web. – agold Jul 8 '19 at 20:49
  • Then make the question about Gmail. "Closing" just means preventing any new answers; it doesn't mean the content is going away. – ale Jul 8 '19 at 20:50

There's no native way but you could reply to yourself and delete/make bold/change color the text you've read.

Another idea is to forward the email to your Kindle using the Kindle-generated email address. Kindle apps on all platforms should remember where you stopped reading, as do services like Instapaper and Pocket (which also have email addresses you can forward things to).

  • Thanks this might not be the solution but it is a good idea. Actually in Inbox I can edit the reply without having to send/forward it, it will stay there (and in Drafts) until I send/remove it. – agold Mar 10 '17 at 8:03
