The power behind your message history is the ability to search past conversations. You may consider instant messaging a casual communication tool. And it is, but you’ll also find that the ability to search for information from a past conversation can have its advantages.
Open the My History tab. (Remind me how.)
In the Search message history box, type one or more words that you want to find, then click the Search button or press the Enter key.
The search results show a list of instant message conversations with the phrase you typed shown in bold.
To view an entire message, click the message line in the search results.
Use the search message history feature to remind you of what you may or may not have said a few weeks ago.
