Additional conversation history information

  • Yahoo Messenger conversations remain on your Android device until you clear them.
  • Archives are stored locally on your Android device and on  Yahoo's servers, so the conversations held on one device, are accessible from that device and from the Conversations folder in Yahoo Mail.
  • A conversation history can only be printed or emailed from a PC.
  • To disable archiving in the Yahoo Messenger for Android, this can only be done from a desktop computer by using Yahoo Mail to disable server side archiving.
