Is there any way to place the list item URL within an email notification in such a way as it is hidden to the user but can be see when viewing the HTML source of the notification within Outlook?

Greetings, Nintex Workflow Gurus!

 

Recently, several users began being flooded with email notifications from a Nintex workflow (identified by our custom corporate header/footer for Nintex workflow email notifications).  Many of these users began replying to the SharePoint farm account (the sender of the notifications by default), and my team was unaware of this workflow or who created/manages it.  After quite some time, we eventually located the workflow through the Nintex Workflow gallery in Central Administration; though, this was fairly painful as we have a lot of workflows.

 

In short, is there any way to place the list item URL within the footer of the email notification message template in such a way as it is hidden to the user but can be seen when viewing the HTML source of the notification within Outlook?  This would certainly help us to locate the list and, consequently, the workflow that sent the notification.  We tried to massage the HTML using the source editor on the footer template to include the list item URL as white text, but our version of Nintex for SP2007 attempts to purify the markup and the footer within the email simply displays a hyperlink in typical blue, underlined fashion - the CSS simply doesn't persist after saving the changes to the template; the property markup for the inserted list item URL reference reverts back to its original settings.

 

Thanks for reading and for any suggestions!
