I've been using YIM/Yahoo for several years now and I've never found a way to retrieve lost archives from yahoo im. You may try emailing yahoo tech support and ask them. They may have a way to get them for you that isn't publicly known or accessible.

I'm recieving messages in yaahoo messenger but my window is not displaying it, i am not able to see even what i've sent. i've enabled the script in control panel but its not not working yet. i've already...


Many people have been having the same problem!

From Yahoo Messenger Help:
I can't see the instant messages.

Hmm, well... you may have scripting disabled in your Internet Explorer.

To enable scripting:
Click the "Tools" menu on your Internet Explorer toolbar and select "Internet Options."

Click the "Security" tab.

Click the Internet (globe) icon and click the "Custom Level" button.

Scroll down to "Scripting."

Enable the following:

* Active scripting
* Allow paste operations via script
* Scripting of Java applets are all enabled

Click the OK button at the bottom of the window.

Note: Restart Yahoo! Messenger and you should start seeing text in your IM windows again.

Copied and pasted from Yahoo Messenger Help:

Why do I receive an error when running Yahoo! Messenger?
Best guess? You might have a corrupt file in your Yahoo! Messenger directory. To fix the problem, you must manually delete the Messenger directory on your C: drive (default), then reinstall the Yahoo! Messenger application.

To delete the directory:

Close the Yahoo! Messenger application if you currently have it running. Make sure all instances of Internet Explorer are closed.
Go to your desktop and double-click "My Computer."
Click the "C:" drive.
Go to:
C:\Program Files\Yahoo!
Highlight the Yahoo! Messenger folder and press the Delete key on your keyboard. (All archives will be deleted if they are not copied. Please see below.)
To install:

Close all running applications except for your Internet browser.
Visit the Yahoo! Messenger home page.
Click the "Download Now" button.
To copy your complete Message Archive:

Close Yahoo! Messenger (if it is currently running).
Go to your Desktop and double-click "My Computer."
Select the "C:" drive.
Go to:
C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles.
Your "Profiles" folder contains your complete Message Archive. Copy it to the same location on another computer if you wish to view it elsewhere.
Note: If you copy this folder to another computer, your complete Message Archive will be copied, overriding the Message Archive on the computer to which you are copying.

I need to retrieve my chat archives from yahoo mail.


Im sorry to say but, you cant retrieve your chat archives from yahoo mail. but you can only retrieve it in Yahoo Messenger.

In order to set the settings in Yahoo Messenger so that you can retrieve the chat archives for future reference,

First..
go to messenger > preferences > Archive > and choose Yes, save all of my messages.

This sets your yahoo messenger application to save all your chat messages even when you logout or close the application.

If you want to retrieve your chat archives, click the View Archive button


:) well i hope this solves your problem..

Im unable to open yahoo messenger. i wanted to uninstall and then reinstall but it wouldn't uninstall. i get a message 'not responding'.


You need to remove version 9,or present version, 1st to get another version to work. To remove Messenger version Use Unwise located middle of page of Messenger Folder.Make sure Automatic is checked! then continue to uninstall..Or use control panel ,Vista-program features or XP-add/remove this is the 2nd best way. If you just delete the Yahoo file to remove messenger,you will also lose the shared file that contains things needed on other Yahoo sites. Your contacts are stored online But if you want to save your old messages archives,they are saved on your PC in the messenger file you are about to delete.Go here and copy them to a new folder
Start>my computer>c:drive>program files>yahoo>messenger>profiles>(your ID)>archive>messages

hi dear

It’s heeeeeeeere!
We know our Mac users have been waiting patiently for a new version of Yahoo! Messenger for Mac. The wait is finally over. Please give a warm welcome to the new Yahoo! Messenger for Mac 3.0 Beta 2. Download it now.
This new version includes:
Tabbed IM windows: When you have two or more conversations going on, they appear as separate tabs in a single window. Less clutter for your desktop! Plus, you can drag a tab out and make it into its own window (or drag it back in to consolidate). Tabbed conversations are a preference, so if you prefer having one window per IM conversation, you still can.
Chat rooms: Yup, the same Yahoo! chat rooms that Windows users have been using are now open to Mac users.
Message archiving: All of your IM and chat room conversations can now be archived on your computer.
Improved stability for webcam and file transfer: There were issues with these in the past version so the team did a lot of bug fixes and under-the-hood work to improve them.
More emoticons: We added in the additional emoticons that are in our other versions of Messenger, so Mac users now have them all!

Check your Win "trash can". You might luck out.

If it's there you can "restore" the archive file.

Other than that I think its gone forever.
