    Hey everyone,
    I've got a friend that showed me she sent out an email through gmail's online portal to 2 of her friends. When she was checking her FB like an hour later... in her messages were the responses to her email by her two friends that are also on FB. What the heck gives? How in the world is FB intercepting those emails she sent out via and showing up in messages? Something is seriously not right.. this is not cool at all. This will hands down end many of my friends FB account if they are doing this.

    Edit: Gmail shows NO new mail. What is seriously happening?

    Take a look at gmail forwarding, there may have been a filter set up to do that. Only thing I can think of.

    Perhaps your friend sent emails to other friends with endings. If you send an email to an address like that, I would assume it shows up in the message feed.

    I have never tried this, so I could be wrong.
