    Hello,

    Do anyone know how to turn of Conversation history from the new Yahoo Mail?

    I can see my old Yahoo Messenger conversations from Yahoo Mail.

    There are a lot of work conversations that I wouldn't want a third party to see if my account got hacked.

    Actually, I'm annoyed that Yahoo has saved these.

    MY IM client, Trillian, is set to not to save conversation histories.

    The preference for conversation history is greyed out for me and can not be unchecked from within the Yahoo Mail Conversation preferences.

    On the bright side it only takes a couple minutes to delete about 10 pages of conversation history.

    The history only went back a year or two, I didn't see anything from 2009 or earlier.

    I deleted my Yahoo account from my Trillian :)
