Gmail Thread URL

Why can’t I copy the URL for a Gmail thread into e.g. Google Calendar? That would be so useful!

Actually I think there is an URL syntax that would work if I only knew the incantation. Wouldn’t it be nice if it was simply in the address bar of the browser?

    OK, I just dug into my research notes from last September and I see that this syntax works:

    http://mail.google.com/mail/?fs=1&tf=1&source=atom&view=cv&search=all&th=10d31c2ebcdd90a2

    (now of course that URL won’t work for you since it requires authentication to my account)

    Now all I have to do if fish that out of the DOM. Bookmarklet here we come!
