Does Embedding/sharing URLs in Gmail Lead To Indexing?

I've been sharing urls in gmail and i'm wondering if it is leading to the URL getting spidered and possibly indexed.
Does anyone have any clear evidence to confirm one way or the other whether the url wlll be spidered, even if it's not indexed?

I've often suspected this - sometimes it seems like it has to be - and yet when I test it by sending a gmail to myself, I don't see the crawl follow. The problem otherwise, is that if i send the email to someone with the Google toolbar installed, or a Chrome user - then if they click on the link, there goes the data off the Google via another channel.
