facebook php notifications_sendEmail

I tried to send FB email with the following function, but did not work.

$fb = new Facebook(API_KEY, SECRET_KEY);

$subject = "FB Email";
$message_body = "This is a FB email testing.";
$fb->api_client->notifications_sendEmail($user, $subject, $message_body);

Could you give a working example?

The example that you have shown should actually work. You're using the proper syntax and initiating the Facebook API correctly.

Have you checked to ensure that your server is correctly configured?

server seems OK.

I can user notification_send(..) to successfully send notification to user, and the message shows up
in user's notification area.

But notification_sendEmail(...) does not put anything on user inbox area.

Should the mail go to user inbox area?

Also is there some way to find out the FB function run well or not.

For example,
$result = $fb->api_client->notifications_sendEmail($user, $subject, $message_body);
then we can get something from $result to know about the function running well or not.

The Facebook developers Wiki seems to be very helpful. Looks like XML is returned from  the function with status codes.
