Persist the grid state in a cookie won't do in this case. The client want to be able to share the URL in email and still get the same filters, sorts, and paging when the grid is loaded.

This could be achieved if the Grid is configured to use server binding. In this case the Grid performs GET requests and retrieves the filter, sort, paging etc. information from the query string in the URL.
Runnable example of server bound Grid could be found in the solution in your Kendo UI distribution package.
