The way does it on their search results page is to set up
an onclick() handler for each link which reports your click to google,
without affecting the actual link target URL.  I'm not certain this
would work with email, since even clients which display HTML might not
execute embedded javascript (I hope not, but I've been
surprised/appalled before).
