  1. This is NOT saving a link to a specific email. Only to a search for an email. Google already has a facility for saving searches. Google removed the ability to get an email ID a few years back(?). They have some reason to restrict the ability to fully manage your emails. I still have some saved ones and they do carry the ID in the url. And they still work. One can get the ID but it takes a lot of programming work and Google has changed the underlying attributes to break this several times in the past.
