    you can set them up to record the message - what service are you using
    in MSN
    >tools
    >options
    >messages
    > tick the automatically keep history - you can then also decide where to save the messages

    Yes, they are gone from your machine. If these are important, ask the person at the other end if (s)he stored the message. In Yahoo messenger, messenger/archive/save my messages. If you are using another client, useful if you mentioned the name.
