Message history

It would be nice to be able to review/store messages from private messages (i.e. like mail). They are clearly stored somewhere on the server as the next time someone messages me, I can see all their old messages, but there is no way to access this directly that I can see…


They are actually not stored permanently. The last 50 lines of private chat are held in memory, but they aren’t disk backed or anything. So presently this isn’t possible.

That isn’t to say that we shouldn’t revisit and rethink that at some point, but that’d be a decision to be made when the private chat functionality is revamped.
