Facebook comes to repairing trouble for massive change without notice and mailing address
A week ago, Facebook changed without warning the default mail accounts registered in the system to email@example.com . The change was premeditated by the social network, but brought a couple of problems apparently unforeseen by the company.
These are two main problems. The first is that for some users of other services in sync with Facebook (eg mobile phone), the addresses associated with their address books automatically switched firstname.lastname@example.org. The other is that in some cases the emails sent to the addresses of Facebook did not reach the recipients, and failure was not notified to the sender of the mail.
The company explained that this second problem is that Mail users@facebook can only receive emails from the addresses recorded in the accounts of his friends, or friends of friends, but not anyone else. If the E-Mail comes from another court, then go to a folder named “other” that many users do not know it exists.
It may also be that some users in setting up your account because they will not accept mails from others, in which case the mail should bounce, something that was not happening. According to Facebook this is due to a problem with spam filters, but they are working to resolve it.
On the automatic synchronization of emails from contacts, Facebook said that it is a bug, apparently of the API that allow this feature. The company is correcting the error to stop it occurring.
