If your Facebook friend has a Facebook email address, you can email him directly from a traditional Yahoo email account. By default, Facebook creates an email address for each person that has a custom public username. When you open a Facebook friend's time line, his public username appears right after "https://www.facebook.com/" in the location bar. This username is the Facebook email address, and any emails sent to it appear in the Facebook messages.

Step 1

Open your Yahoo email account and click the "Compose" button to start a new outgoing email.

Step 2

Enter your friend's Facebook email address in the To field. For example; if your friend's username is "https://www.facebook.com/john.smith," his Facebook email address is john.smith@Facebook.com.

Enter a subject and your outgoing message and click the "Send" button to send the message directly to your Facebook friend's email box.
