How to I get emails back that I accidentally sent to a messenger contact?

I checked the emails to move them to a folder and accidentally sent them to a messenger contact to someone I haven't spoken to in years....will they be about to look at the emails.....these are highly sensitive emails.

Hi Kathy - If you sent emails to a contact over messenger, there is no way to retrieve them once they have been sent. However, if you used the file transfer feature through Messenger and they did not accept the file transfer before you closed the window then they did not receive those files. Hope this information helps! We appreciate you choosing to use Yahoo! Nixon

How to retrieve the messenger conversation history before 2011?

I have messenger version 11.5
I couldnt see the history before 2011. How to retrieve them?

The newer yahoo messenger versions (11 and later) store conversations online which you access thru 'conversation history' (you can't gain access to conversations which you have deleted from this) . For your conversations archived by previous versions of messenger (before version 11 when yahoo used to store messages locally) , look for your yahoo 'profile' folder for your OS. . It contains your user name and in that names of all people you have talked to, and in that the archive files (.dat files) You can read those archived files with a yahoo messenger archive decoder or you have the option to import these archives to your conversation history. If you want to import your messages archived by previous versions so that they are now accessible from 'conversation history' from newer yahoo messenger, you can read about it here how to do so: If you don't see the button to import archives, see here : I personally dislike 'conversation history' (it's too slow, buggy and i hate the way it shows conversations divided into small sections) , so I have not imported my older archives online. I just have it in one folder which I access using a yahoo messenger archive decoder which lets me view and search within these archives. My newer conversations I acess thru conversation history, no choice!

If you open an ALIAS account you will not lose anything (contacts, address list, saved mails, folders.) If someone sends mail to the old e-mail address, it will go to the same Inbox so you don't lose any messages.

Hi, I wanna buy a web cam for my home pc. Can you please suggest the right web cam, How to install it and use on yahoo messenger ?

Try this: Click messenger top left, scroll down and click preferences then scroll down and click webcam where you can make adjustments, click o.k. To make sure it is o.k. click messenger top left, scroll down and click my webcam. and your webcam should come on. You should also run your call setup.

How to stop unwanted Yahoo messenger chat requests?

Every time I connect to yahoo mail and load messenger, about a dozen chat requests appear in tabs. I have set the "lock chat messages from anyone who is not in my Contacts." Apparently this setting does not stop the requests, only the messages. I have tried clicking "ignore" but this only seems to create more of them.

There is no way to stop people sending you the requests, as far as I know. All you can do is ignore the requests and block the senders if you don't wish to connect with them.

I need to know how to....?

I have an e-mail address from someone in the country of Honduras. I want to know if anyone knows how to contact them throughout Yahoo Messenger.
Thank you!

You have to contact this friend, and ask if they have Yahoo! Messenger, and ask if you could have their username so you can put them on your Friend's list for Messenger so you can chat. If it's not a friend, then you shouldn't chat with whoever it is on Messenger anyway. Not everyone uses Messenger, so there are no guarantees your friend has it or is interested in using it.
