    Messenger 8.5 message history lost for a contact

    I was using Messenger 8.5 earlier, and I have the option to log all the
    messages activated.
    I finished chatting to a contact, then later looked at the message history
    to check something, and the discussion we had had earlier did not appear in
    the history.
    Can I recover this from somewhere?
    The message had some important information in it.

    RE: Messenger 8.5 message history lost for a contact

    Hi srandy.

    I have the same problem. It happened with both of my conversations last
    night. My status was on 'appear offline'. Now I'm not a computer genius, but
    I do think this must be the case. I have never had this problem with other
    versions. This was the second day of using this version. If my theory is
    correct (which hey it may not) then its RIDICULOUS! Why would someone make a
    person 'appear online' to save messages?
