    Hi. Thanks for the suggestion. We will look in to the idea of exporting chat logs and evaluate its feasibility and popularity.

    Thanks
    Chris

        UPDATE:
        http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/7616/log2logmockupmeebotopid.png

        Because of various complaints that people were unable to download Meebo chat logs by using Log2Log PHP, Deltik is making a second attempt to make it work.

        The Log2Log project is NOT gone. Downloading Meebo chat logs is the number 1 priority, and Log2Log is the main focus of Deltik right now. It is still in active development, and we will let you know when Log2Log is ready. We missed our tentative expected release date of the end of August 2011, but just be assured that DELTIK IS STILL WORKING ON IT.

        Log2Log will be officially supported for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.

        Want to speed things up? Help develop Log2Log <http://log2log.sf.net/>! Contact me at deltik@gmx.com for more information.

        It's critical since that's part of our core online knowledge base. Please do so asap.

        DOWNLOAD MEEBO CHAT LOGS!:

        Deltik has worked very hard to bring you the first Meebo chat log self-serve backup system.
        Here's a fair warning for you: This software was rolled out as fast as possible and is currently alpha-quality software. It has gone through mild testing and has been rather successful.

        SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS: MeeboConnect is not capable of downloading chat logs while there is an active session. Make sure to log off of ALL your sessions of Meebo before trying to download your chat logs.

        HERE IT IS: http://meebo.deltik.org/ or http://deltik.x10.mx/meebo/

        The underlying software is called Log2Log: http://products.deltik.org/pub/log2log/demos/latest/

        Please report any problems! If backing up chat logs is not working for you, I can't fix the issues(s) without knowing about them. Email: webmaster@deltik.org

        This is the one missing feature I've wished for in about 5 years of using the messenger service. Please implement it!

        DOWNLOAD CHAT LOGS INFORMATION:
        Meebo Support has reported that Meebo Development has claimed that they are having difficulty creating a feature to download chat logs.
        I re-suggested chat logs to Meebo through their Support team and got the following reply: "Thanks for writing in with your feedback! I'll make sure your suggestion is put on the list to be reviewed by the Meebo team. Your input helps direct Meebo's development, so it's great to hear from you, and please let us know if you have any more ideas for new features or improvements to Meebo. I hope you have a great day!"

        In short, Meebo won't help us with a feature to download chat logs.
        BUT!!!
        Here's some great news for you: I have almost completed a totally automated way of downloading chat logs from Meebo as of this comment. For more information, contact me at <deltik@gmx.com>.

        I submitted this suggestion awhile back, would love to see it implemented. Gave it my votes. :)

        I'm also looking for this feature. I'm surprised there's no way to download the logs. This would be a very popular feature
