Hello Daniel,

The option to send an email to a project and convert it into a task never creates an URL. Are you certain that the email was sent to the project and not the "Add email as task" option was used to link the email (as that's the only option to generate a link to an email)?

Either way, please note that it's impossible to access such email anyway because Gmail will require you to be logged into the account from which the email originates. So the person who added this task to a shared project would also have to give you the login and password to their Gmail account in order for this link to work.

Best regards,
