Not sure how many people at GUG have Google Gears so for those that don't its a nice program that let's you search your myspace inbox the same way you woluld do your yahoo or hotmail.  I was using it today and made a search which came up with some responses but all the messages were made from a friend of mine that deleted her account.   This message is over a year and a half old so I was wondering if there was a way to read it?

Re: way to see deleted myspace messages?

Maybe. But I don't know how. . o O ( Wow do I feel useful )

From what I understand Google Gears saves copies of everything to your hard drive. So even if a profile is deleted and you can no longer read the message from you inbox, there should be a way to access the copy saved on your hard drive. Unfortunately that's the part I don't know how to do. However I think it would be a safe bet to say this would only be possible if the profile was deleted AFTER you installed gears. You mentioned that the message in question is 1 1/2 year's old. But when was the profile that it was sent from deleted? If it's before you installed gears then I don't think this method is going to work out for you.

Still, even if the delete happened prior to gears don't give up hope. There maybe a way so don't go removing that message from your inbox just yet. Unfortunately once again I don't know how to pull this off, but it's possible there maybe a way to view messages sent from a deleted profile without gears. In case you don't know you can read COMMENTS sent from a deleted profile. The picture will still be missing, but magically the comment message will show up. Hopefully one day we'll figure out how to do this with regular messages too, and when that day comes you'll still want a copy of it to read.

Sorry I can't be of more help.
