How to delete Yahoo! Messenger status messages

yahoo-statusYahoo! Messenger is a well known instant messenger client where people use to chat with their family, friends or with other peoples. It also includes an option which we can set our own custom status message to be displayed beside our name in our friend’s messenger buddy list.

Old custom status messages will be replaced by the new one. That’s why Yahoo! does not include options to delete the status message history. But some people want to delete the status messages but they don’t know how.

Clear/Edit YahooMessenger Status History is a small utility coded with VisualBasic that will clear out your custom status messages. You can select which Yahoo! user ID in your computer that you want to edit and start change or delete the status messages for the ID. And you also can changing available custom status messages from the drop down list in your messenger. [tags]yahoo, yahoo messenger, messenger, tool, software[/tags]
