Save chat transcripts
An iChat client can be configured to record its own chat transcripts.
The iChat Server can also be configured to record all chat messages.
The client recording capability is useful to the individual iChat user, while the server message logging capability is intended for administrative and auditing purposes.

Chat transcripts are saved at /Library/Server/iChat/Data/message_archives.

  1. In the Server app, select the iChat service pane.
  2. Click Archive all chat messages.
