Facebook retires its troubled @facebook.com email service

Facebook is retiring its email service and has begun notifying users that all email sent to their @facebook.com address will soon be forwarded to their primary email address on file. Facebook users can turn off the forwarding feature, which is on by default. Users without a primary email address on Facebook won't receive forwarded messages, but it's pretty unlikely that they're missing anything. "Most people have not been using their @facebook.com email address," said a Facebook spokesperson, who confirmed that the update effectively retires the social network's email service.

I'd forgotten all about that service.
I guess it was superfluous to most FB users and never got any traction.

I remember spending a bunch of time trying to figure out how to turn that address off in my profile. That's about it.

Was there ever a real e-mail interface for those addresses?
