Hi and Welcome to

 

I am sorry to say this but Microsoft doesn't store any of the conversations for legal reasons.

 

If your Message History is tuned on History is saved on the computer you're using at the time in .xml files that cna be viewd using notepad or any web browser.

 

In MSN Messenger select the Tools menu, Options... menu item, and then the Messages tab. At the bottom of the dialog is an item labeled: Message History. Select it and your conversations will be recorded in the directory listed in the box below

 

IFMessage History is enabled you can find your conversation in Sept 08 in the directory.Else you are out of luck.

 

Hope this clarifies your doubts,

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
