Sometimes when I am not logged on Facebook and my friend Joe sends me a message, it is sent to my email (Gmail), with a footer saying:

Reply to this email to message Joe

When I reply to the email it, Joe does not seem to receive that reply, though.

Is there any reason why it would not work? Configuration? Any kind of usage limit?

The To: field is:

Message Email Reply <m+30vphcxm000000bgz9hk00003nxhyki5nld6b06tbril24iw2n2@reply.facebook.com>

    @pnuts: Thanks for the feedback, I added the info. I am really talking about private messages (1-to-1), not wall posts. – nic May 30 '14 at 1:51

    @pnuts: I actually changed a number of letters into other letters, and a number of digits into other digits. The message shows up normally in my Gmail "Sent" folder, but does not show up in my Facebook conversation with this person. – nic May 30 '14 at 4:51

    @pnuts Joe had not seen my message when logging into Facebook, even 8 hours afterwards. – nic May 30 '14 at 12:13
