Hi There Leo, you have saved me from many a slapping my own forehead moment in the past so thanks for that!
Anyhow, my question regarding messenger hitory.... have always had the save history tickbox checked since day one, but when I try to recall it I find there are coversations that don't appear. For example, speaking to my girlfriend who's the other side of the world at the moment virtually everyday, yet when I recall our history there are gaps of several days between recorded chats, and some of the once recorded haven't saved the complete chat.
Any ideas? Could really do with getting that history back cos she's given me some inportant dates for my diary that i didn't write down at the time and she will get mighty cross if I ask her again!
Thanks Leo, and keep up the excellent work!

HI IV FOUND MSN CONVOS ON MY LAP TOP BUT WHEN I TRY AND OPEN THEN THEY COME UP IN A FUNNY LANGUAGE HOW CAN I OPEN THEN TO READ THEM?
Ok, I just initiated the 'save conversations' mode. I don't see any past conversations. I didn't retrieve old MSN messenger convos.
Is there a another way to retrieve them?
Hi there Leo, How do you save your conversations back when you pressed 'Do not save conversations' Because i have tried everything that was possible but it wouldn't work, know anything? if do you great, if you don't then that's fine too :]
are there any programs or something that you can do so that the convos are sent to me by email automaticly?
I cannot see the messages tab when I go to the Tools --options button. Is there another way?
