Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.

Is there a way to change the message length limit in MSN Messenger?

Not that I'm aware of. I'm told different versions may have different limits, though.

There is an addon for msn messenger that will allow you to boost your messages up to 1100 characters. It is called messenger Plus and it is also free.

If you have Msn 7.5 you can download an extra called Stuff plug which increases it to something like 5000+.

Google "Stuff plug" for it.

when the message history limit is reached on MSN it gives the option of deleting older messages. i deleted those for one of my conversations by accident (i didn't archive them). is there a location from which these deleted conversations can be retrieved?

Thank you!
