    UPDATE: This FB user has to activate their FB email...so whatever written below is not an effective way to spam..

    This is how you gather 500 millions email addresses, best almost all of it is active email account

    Just do a simple query in Google:
    site:facebook d+o+t c+o+m / * I can't post link yet...)
    Replace * to the word you like to begin. For example, you wish to extract person name "Bill"

    Use Grease Monkey or other scripting tool to collect the latest part of all urls.

    append it to [+at+]facebook d+o+t c+o+m (I can't post link yet...) to the collected FB profile page name.

    and you have 700billions email addresses straight to FB user message box.

    Pro: You can extract first/last name from their profile and put it into your spam mail so that it reduce the spam factor. (Recipient name is a huge factor is spam filtering)

    Drawback: Google limit your search query. Who cares if you have dozen of proxy

    It looks like FB have implemented captcha's if your referrer is that type of scraping query from a search engine.

    To make this worthwhile you would need automated captcha solving on that type of image.

    Facebook email just rolled out and many of the users haven't activate their facebook email. Yet, I tested few FB accounts which haven't activate the FB email but still able to receive external email.

    sending email does not require captcha. The just straight to "other folder" in the recipient's mailbox.

    p.s please remove the + in the first post. I add it because BHW does not allow me to post link...

    This method would have been some real gold had Facebook Email seen the kind of success it was expecting.

    However, FB Email has seen the shock of the century and never took off as it was expected. Infact it never reached to more than like 10% of 700 million users.

    Do you use youname@facebook.com for mailing ? NO!

    People just don't want another email address.

    If you try using this, for 90% of your mails you will see this -

    66.220.155.10 does not like recipient. Remote host said: 550 5.1.1 RCP-P1
    http://postmaster.facebook.com/response_codes?ip=yourip#rcp
    Recipient address does not exist Giving up on 66.220.155.10. The real communications revolution that's gonna take place in this decade is not facebook email, its something else.

    It works. I have tested few accounts, even if you're not activating the facebook email, you will be receiving the email.

    Facebook is forcing everyone to have an email account whether you like it or not.

    Those bounced back emails you're getting is mostly due to Fans Page rather than Profile Page.

    To differentiate that, you have to see the result page's description, if it is start with First Name and Last time, that's a profile page.

    UPDATE: Ok, My mistake, only only those who activated the email are able to receive external email.

    What u want to say? Facebook has lunched emails for FB users?
    and the email format is likely: username@facebook.com

    Are u crazy? now tell me those people who haven't any user name in FB, what will be their FB emails?

    I guess he is right................

    According to FB: If you don't have a username yet, you can choose one when you create your email address.
