Sometimes I need to quickly get into Gmail on a not-so-great connection, send a message (or get one I know was just sent to me), and get out. The mobile browser interface is perfect for that.

Is there an URL I can use (in a shortcut) that will get me directly to the mobile interface no matter what my real user agent happens to be?

For that matter, I suppose that the simple HTML interface that I sometimes get offered when Gmail has spent many minutes trying to start up could also be useful. Is there a URL or other way to get to that directly?


The URL http://m.gmail.com/ will take you to the Gmail mobile interface.

The URL https://mail.google.com/mail/?ui=html will take you to the basic HTML interface.
