Google Wave gives you a user­name in the form of example@googlewave.com. It looks like an email ad­dress, so I tried send­ing an email to mine. This is what I got back:

What happens when I email this?

Maybe in the fu­ture this will be a wave to email bridge. In the mean time, there should at least be a more help­ful bounce mes­sage.
