Yes, if you do it via the inbox tab.

I think it depends if you were the only person the message was sent to.
I have had someone send a message to a few contacts and any of their replies came to me email address too.

If you go onto facebook itself and go into the inbox tab at the top, you should be able to see the meassage you were sent if it was a private message between you and the other person.

It will have their profile name and pic, then the title of the message. If you click on the title of the message you will see what they wrote and then your reply. It will also say 'this is between you and x' if it's just you and her, ot 'you, x, y & z' if she's messaged a few others at the same time. If she's done that then your reply will also go to y &z as well as x.

Not sure if I'm making sense to anyone other than my self here.......... grin
