    Hey John:

    Not familiar w/ hosting a local IM system but most have the ability (off by default) to turn on message logging at the client.

    Is this the case for you?

    I take it the client didn't turn on message history and your hoping it is available somewhere else in the server component.

    That I cannot answer as, I said above, I have no experience with your "local" implementation.

        I don't know about Mesenger v5, but Live Messenger keeps its logs under My Documents\My Received File\[account name]. There is an XML file for every and each contact you chatted with.
        Try to look in the Options settings of the client where does it saves the logs...
        Good luck.
