is it even possible to use the facebook email like that? – RolandiXor Apr 14 '11 at 13:26
@Roland I could give it a try, if I know the server and other settings for it! – avi Apr 14 '11 at 17:23
I read somewhere that that wasn't the plan on facebook's end, so it might not be possible to use the email except through a web interface. – RolandiXor Apr 14 '11 at 17:32
@Roland got it can be accessed only from fb!thx – avi Apr 14 '11 at 22:53

From Facebook Help Center:

How do I set up a free email address? To set up a free address, go to your Messages view and click the "Claim your Facebook email" link.

Your email address will match your public username, for example:

Profile: Email:

If you don’t have a username yet, you can choose one when you create your email address.

Once you set up your email address, people can email you using any traditional email system (e.g., Hotmail, Yahoo or Gmail), and the emails will be delivered to your Facebook Messages. When you send messages to external email addresses, the emails will be formatted to look like Facebook messages, including your name, your profile picture and your message.

This seems to be the official information from Facebook but it points to receive email from traditional email systems, not to sending from elsewhere but inside of the Facebook web.

I hope you find a solution for this.

Good luck!
