How to find my archived conversation and voice call history by using my Conversation History.
This article describes how you can search your message and voice call archives by using your Conversation History in Yahoo! Messenger 11.
You can access your Message archive from the menu option Contacts | Conversation History.
In the "Conversation History" window, you can view your conversations in chronological order. If you are looking for particular conversations with one of your contacts, you can sort the archives alphabetically by clicking Participant in the "Conversation History" window. Currently, there is no way to filter by "Participant" to see only conversations with a particular contact.
The Conversation History combines both the Message Archive and Call History features found in previous versions of Yahoo! Messenger. To view conversations of a particular type, such as Instant Messages, Video Calls, etc., click the drop-down menu at the top of the window and select a conversation type. By default, this menu should display "View All."
You can also use the search box in the "Conversation History" window to search for specific keywords. Yahoo! Messenger will search through all the stored archives for the specified keywords and then display IM conversations that contain that keyword.
NOTE: Archived conversations are limited to 100 transactions, interactions or transmissions, or to 20 minutes of chat. Your 101st transaction will initiate a separately archived chat. Similarly, if your chat is idle for more than 20 minutes, your next transaction will begin a separately archived chat.

If you are using the default mail application on the iPhone or an IPad and you are using Yahoo! Mail as your default mail provider, you may see a folder labeled Y! Conversations. This folder will contain your Yahoo! Messenger conversation history. In order to remove the conversations from this folder, please review the article How to delete IM conversations in Conversations Folder.
