The identities and friends
panel (left side) will show you a tree interface with the identities and the friends with whom each identity had conversations.
The conversations panel (right-top) will only show the conversations with the friends selected from the identities and friends panel. It is possible to select more than one friend, by pressing control while clicking the friends. In order to display all the conversations available on the computer, regardless of identity, you can click on "show all".
The view conversation panel (right-bottom) will only display the selected conversations from the conversations panel.
Searching through the conversations
Dapyx Reader for Yahoo Messenger can search throughout the conversations shown in the conversation panel, by entering the search term and then clicking "search" or pressing enter. If you want to search throughout the message archive, before searching, you have to click on "show all" in the identities and friends panel.
Exporting to HTML and text files
File • Save as HTML...
File • Save as text...
File • Save as individual HTML files...
File • Save as individual text files...
The Yahoo Message Archive Reader program may save the current selected conversations (see conversations
panel) to files, allowing you to back up, send to others or publish conversations. This can be done in two file types:
HTML, which has formatting (fonts, bold/italic, colours) and can also be used on your own website.
Plain text, which has the formatting removed.
The default is to save all the conversations in one file, but it is possible to save each conversation in its own individual file.
Opening .dat files
File • Open .dat files...
Dapyx Messenger Archive Reader can open not only the files from the message archive on the current computer, but it is possible to open .dat files copied from other computers. However, in order to decode the files, the name of the identity is required. The name of the friend cannot be known just from the dat files, but it is not required in order to read the conversation.
