You can goto My Documents --> My Recieved files --> Folder with the name of your email address ie user@hotmail.com --> Open that and they should be in there. If not you can also go to www.msn.be I think the site is and they have tools to view chat logs / history.

Maybe give that a go ;)

I think this was what I was reffering to :

http://www.customizeyourmsn.com/?msn=downloads&id=281

It is however for msn 6 as far as I am aware, I have not tried it with other versions of msn messenger and so I am not sure if it would work with other versions of msn just because It would depend on if the other version(s) of msn would require to write xml files as far as I can tell, you can however give it a go :)

On the main msn messenger window go to tools --> Options --> Messages and see where they are stored, go to that path / directory and see if that folder exists ( the other way to tell if they exist to a certain extent would be to see if the first checkbox under Message History is checked ie the one that says "Automatically keep a history of my conversations"

If it is un checked then obviously it will not save them. If it is and you can find the history log files then obviously you have them :)

Other then that I am not sure :)
