    I am going to say NO but there is always a chance that Yahoo! has tried to improve the security of the archived messages and the old ones are incompatible with the newer versions. What you can do is make a copy of your archives by going into your programs/Yahoo/messenger folder and paste them on your desktop. Install the new version and see if they are still there. If they are not you can always downgrade and set your archives back in place. A good place to search, if you haven't already, is the Yahoo! help. Hope this helps!

    DO NOT UPGRADE TO YAHOO MESSY 8!!

    Everyone is having problems with YM8 and Windows Live Messy.

    The problems range from sign in problems to pc crashes.

    And to top it all off, it's almost impossible to get rid of.

    KEEP YOUR YAHOO MESSY 7.
