Yes, I do this all the time.  To do this, you would create a data base table and log all of your transactions.  You can save some individual columns (such as the DATETIME, and the txn_id and the user email) and you can use a text column to store the raw post data.  Then just query your table.

You're right, if you are relying on PayPal to keep your data for you.  I do not do that.  I keep every transaction reported to the IPN in a log file.  That gives me 60 days to use the PayPal interface, but it also gives me a permanent historical record of what happened, when.  The best time to plant a tree is always 20 years ago.  But the only time you can plant a tree is today.  You might want to start keeping a log file in your data base right now.  Who knows when it might be helpful in the future?
