I know how to manually forward a Facebook message. But what I want to know is if there is a way to automatically forward all Facebook messages to my email address. Does anyone know a way to do this?

At this time Facebook doesn't have automatically forwarding messages to email address. But you can enable Push notification to email address.

Login Facebook -> Settings -> Notifications -> Email address -> select option All notifications, except the ones you unsubscribe from

But this will send you all the notifications to your email id, so you have to unsubscribe all the unwanted notifications from the email.

Another way is try with IFTTT. You have to check if it has automatically forwarding message option from friends or not.

    IFTTT doesn't allow Messenger as an input, just as an output.

  • @Calion I checked IFTTT again today, and confirmed that seems to be the case that there is no way to do this from IFTTT. At least, I couldn't find it by searching for "Facebook Messenger" or just "Messenger" in the IFTTT search field.
