How To Forward An Email To A Facebook Account (and vice versa)

Wish to forward an email with photos to your friend on Facebook? Forwarding an email to a Facebook account is really easy as long as you got the correct email address of the Facebook user. In this tutorial, I will teach you how to forward an e-mail message to a Facebook user and vice versa. If you have absolutely no idea how emailing works on Facebook, I recommend you to read this useful guide about Facebook email.

Forward an email to a Facebook account

1. Your Facebook email address is the same as your Facebook username. To find someone’s Facebook username, simply go to his/her timeline and the URL of his/her timeline will appear in the location bar of your browser.

For example, if your friend’s Facebook profile link is “”, then his Facebook public username will be “carlcheo“.

2. Add “” behind the username, which will be “” in this example.

3. Forward your email to the Facebook email address. Make sure you are using the right email account which is linked to your Facebook account, so that Facebook will not block your email message. I have tried sending email to my Facebook friend by using another email address which isn’t linked to my Facebook account and he failed to receive it.
