If you want to share Gmail messages without anyone, here is how you can do that with the help of Mailie. It is a Google Chrome extension which lets you create a sharable link so that you can allow someone to check the email quickly. However, the process is quite complicated, and it is recommended to read the entire article to get started with this extension.
It is pretty straightforward to share a file of Google Docs, Google Sheets, or Google Slides. However, there is no option to do the same with Gmail messages. Although you can forward the email to a person, it will make a mess when you need to share a lot of messages with a lot of people continuously.
What is Mailie?
Mailie is a Google Chrome extension (compatible with Microsoft Edge, too) that lets you create a sharable link to any Gmail message. Following that, you can send the link to someone so that he/she can check the message within moments.
However, there is a catch, which is probably the most important thing you need to know before installing this extension. In order to view the message, the person must be included in the Gmail message thread or shared Gmail account. Otherwise, he/she cannot view your email in any way. In other words, this extension works only when someone is included in a thread or shared Gmail ID. However, there is a bypass, which works pretty fluently. You need to ask the owner to forward the email first. Then, you can search for the exact email when you have the shareable link.
To sum up all these things, Mailie works better when you are in an email thread or shared Gmail account. If you are not a part of the email thread, the sender must forward you the email first. In the second situation, Mailie works as an email finder when you have received countless emails in your inbox.
The workflow of this extension is pretty straightforward. All you need to do is to create and copy the link and send it to the recipient. Following that, the recipient needs to open the link on his/her browser to find the email you are talking about.
