Not that I’m aware of. I’m told different versions may have different limits, though.

  1. If you have Msn 7.5 you can download an extra called Stuff plug which increases it to something like 5000+.

    Google “Stuff plug” for it.

  2. when the message history limit is reached on MSN it gives the option of deleting older messages. i deleted those for one of my conversations by accident (i didn’t archive them). is there a location from which these deleted conversations can be retrieved?

    Thank you!
