    I could probably wait until she gets home but something happened to my wife that pissed me the fuck off.
    So my wife is on FB, has a small list of friends but she can go weeks without even checking in. She hadn't been on FB for over 2 weeks until today and she see's an email from someone saying basically, "fuck off if you don't even want to help".

    My wife was like wtf? Then she sees that this same person, who is someone we know (but as of now I'm not sure if this person is on her friends list), emailed her 2 weeks ago. Basically asking for a handout for HIS daughter (whom we have had a relationship with and IS on my wife's friend list). Since my wife never saw the first one and obviously didn't reply, this dude assumed she was blowing him off.

    My question (and keep in mind I never even used FB) is: Can someone who is NOT on your friends list still email you? I would assume you have to have friended someone for them to email you. My wife isn'T even sure if he's on her friends list so she's going to check when she gets home but I figure someone here knows if this can be done.

    Yes. Depending on your privacy settings you can get messaged by someone NOT on your friends list.
    I have been messaged by friends friend who I dont have on my list.
    Hope this answers your question.
