I would like to get a bookmark (permanent url) for a Gmail conversation, for myself (not to share with third parties). The url displayed in the Browser contains information related to the current search, or about how you got to the message. For example, if I open a message in my inbox:

Is there a way to get permanent conversation URLs?


Some emails have a "View Entire Message" link at the bottom which is a permanent link you can bookmark.

For example:



The downside is that you can't view the email from this link on mobile.
