So for some reason I'm receiving emails from the person I'm chatting with containing the chat log of the last several lines of the conversation. This has happened with 2 different people only since I only just got on my laptop. But I noticed the email from the first while at work then when I chatted with my other friend when I got home. I'm logged in with a address so it is a Live ID.

Does anyone have any idea what's wrong?

Are you sure you are not using an third party client ? I was using Trillian So what i noticed that every message you dont reply to you get the message emailed to you. – aibk01 Sep 28 '11 at 5:18
I'm pretty sure the Windows Live Messenger I downloaded from is the official application. – Portaljacker Sep 28 '11 at 13:35
