    Hello,

    I recently learned that facebook is launching an email service. I was wondering if anyone new of any 'invites' or early sign up offers? If not, do you know how I can be one of the early people to sign up, so that I get my desired username?

    Thanks,
    desidude

    You would not have to reserve your username, once you go to a vanity, it would do the email automatically. myvanity@fb.com

    Hi CNC,

    Thanks for the reply. I sent an email to the address you have given and it bounced back...

    I am not sure if you said it in jest or whether I have the wrong email....

    Hi Tarna, news about facebook email is all over the web.

    Thanks,
    desidude

    I was just pointing out that that is the domain the emails would likely be using since they bought it recently. It use to belong to American Farm Bureau Federation

    Here is a Facebook webpage which mentions their domain

    http://www.facebook.com/pages/White-County-Farm-Bureau/280243749271?v=info

    They are also in a dispute with Facebook about the use of FB, but they claim they have FB registered as their trademark

    FARM BUREAU® and FB® are registered service marks owned by the American Farm Bureau Federation. More information regarding the American Farm Bureau Federation can be found at www.fb.org.

    Well, they sold fb.com to Facebook back around September
