(I changed my opinion of the best method for doing this in the middle of my post - read to the very end).

Open Yahoo Messenger (I am assuming you are using Version 9 (Beta). Click on the Contacts tab and go to Message archive. This will pull up all conversations, incl deleted offline messages from pornbots, etc. Right click each folder under the main "Messages" folder and delete them one by one. I tried deleting them in bulk, but this feature doesn't seen to be enabled yet - I would tell Yahoo that they need to improve on this feature when they finalize version 9.

Oops! correction: they did enable this feature (see below)
My method:
Open Yahoo Messenger. Click the "Messenger" tab. go to Preferences. Click on Archive. Click on "No, do not save any of my messages". Then click, "Clear archive now".

Yahoo's suggested method:
To turn off archiving of your instant messages:
1. Click History in the top-right part of the page.
2. Click Options in the upper right of the My History window.
3. Un-check “Enable Message History” in the dialog.
4. Click Done.

How to delete messages


Many instant message programs are set, by default, to save your chat history.
This might not be a desirable feature for people who share a computer with others since it could pose a security threat.
Delete the folder in which the history is saved or delete the chat history within the instant message program.
Popular instant messenger programs, such as Yahoo!, Windows Live and Skype, simplify the process of clearing message archives.

Delete archived messages in Yahoo! Messenger.
Open Yahoo! Messenger.
Click on "Messenger" on the toolbar and select "Preferences."
Click "Clear Archive Now" to delete your chat.
Clear chat history in Windows Live Messenger.
Open the program and click the first icon from the right at the top of the box.
This is the "Show Menu" icon. Highlight "File" and click "View Message History."
Select a contact from your list to view messages from or to that contact.
Click "OK."
Click "Delete History" at the top of the "Message History" window.


Erase your conversation history in Skype.
Launch the program and click on "Privacy Settings."
Click the "Clear History" button under the "Keep History For" section.
This will delete all saved conversations.

Clean the message archives in Google Talk.
Click "Settings" on the toolbar and select "Chat" from the list of options.
Click the "Don't Save" option and click "OK."

Delete all message archives with an application.
Programs such as Cyber Scrub, WinClear and ParetoLogic Privacy Controls will delete the history from any instant messaging program, as well as tracking data from your Internet activity. Many of these programs are available for download.

My yahoo id is latha2655@yahoo.com. I need to access a "yahoo messenger chat" I had with a friend on 19th, 21st, 22nd and 24th of April 2008. I did not know how to save it. Can you please help...


Hi,
Welcome to Fixya Support
I am Michelle, and i will be assisting you regarding the issue

First of all i would like to inform you that chat conversations are not saved on the ayhho server. In case you have enabled archives then the messages would get saved on your computer.
To check the same follow the below steps:
Go to messenger ...preferences... archives, enable this feature, click okay.
To save future messages, mark "yes, save all of my messages", click "apply" and "ok".
The messages are usually saved at the below path:
C\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles

In case the above fails you may give a try at using the Yahoo Messenger Chat Recovery Tool
http://www.download3000.com/download_26680.html

If both the above fail then there is hardly a chance that the chat history could be retrieved

Feel free to ask in case you have any queries

If the information i shared above was useful please do rate the solution as Fixya.

To read archived messages right-click the user ID, click message archive.

Can i show my old messege in my yahoomessenger


Yes. In every contact opened, there is a link at the beginning of the chat that says Show recent Messages or you can press F3. Then it will show you if you want to view FULL archive. click that and it will open you the daily conversation with that contact and also the messages of other contacts in the left panel.

This is of course assuming that message history is saved.

To setup your account to save all conversations, Click Messenger from the menu and click Preferences. Click Archive from the left menu and choose to save all conversations.

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!
Download Yahoo! Messenger for Mac 3.0 Beta 2
