    Any chance to make some money off this? :D
    Maybe taking some premium names and registering them and after that selling them because @facebook.com will be very very popular :).

    Well the most interesting thing is, if a real mass of users is willing to switch to FB email instead of MSN/Y/G and for e-mail marketers, it will be VERY interesting how easy/hard it will be to hit the inbox.

    IF FB is stupid enough to automatically make your profile-name to your e-mail (e.g. fb.com/steve.stevens = steve.stevens@fb.com) you suddenly could build up huge maillists and send buttloads of email ;)

    They HAVE to do it that way. Cant do it any other way. No way you can have facebook.com/markzuckerberg

    and I go and get email markzuckerberg@fb.com NO WAY will they let that happen.

    if you pick a vanity, then they will have to lockup that fb.com email account, so it is not STUPID at all. No other way to do it.

    I already sense a huge fail from Facebook on this one. That's not the industry they know much about...

    What I ment was they would be extremely stupid to automatically create an fb.com email for every user automatically based on their fb username - cause it would make it extremely easy to build huge email-lists :)

    But what if they make it so you can't use a Gmail account anymore, like eBay made it so you can only use PPal

    So if they made it that you had to have a registered FBmail account it would actually help them control their system.

    That doesn't mean that people would use it as email client, they would only use it for facebook...

    I have said from the start this is NOT Facebooks area. They are going to make a huge mess here and Yahoo, MSN, Google are all sitting back watching them about to leave a creater in the Internet.

    People like us are at the gates, drooling at the mouths like blood hungry dogs hoping that Facebook make that slip up to allow us to make a huge amount of cash.

    The big email providers of today have been in it for a long time and know alot about email.

    Do you have a bot that can make multiple facebook accounts in no time? I think it goes well with the email maker.
