v.gd sends people to a "preview the URL" page by default.

is.gd allows individuals to set a cookie which will result in a preview page being displayed.

Of course your dislike for URL shorteners might be due to page ranking, dead links or other issues. I would reference the short and long URL using the "traditional" [1] or †/* notation:

Or one could switch to HTML mail and the problem of wrapping links goes away!
