Hope this comes out ok but if not then use "view-as-plain-text" in your 
email client...

I have just created a header cell (imaginatively called "A HEADER") and 
inspected the html...

<h1 id="A-HEADER">A HEADER<a href="#A-HEADER" class="anchor-link">¶</a></h1>

So then I created a link elsewhere in the same page using the "id"...

<a HREF="#A-HEADER">top</a>

Both cell types were set to "Markdown" and the link works.
