Dexrex is a rather clever freeware tool for archiving your instant messaging and SMS chats. It’s a hosted online application, which integrates with your IM clients via a set of downloadable plugins. Just download, install and start up MSN, AIM, Skype or whatever and the chat will be recorded and stored to the Dexrex servers automatically. You can import old conversations (via a Java applet) and once your chats are stored you have full search facilities available to locate stuff as you need. There are other features too, such as analytical tools and a service for the Blackberry SMS. Nice idea.
What is Dexrex Dexrex is a secure online personal database for IM conversation.

Or you’re just looking to save your conversations for posterity. Dexrex makes it easy to do any of these. We’ve also built an analytics suite, so the more messages you save, the more tools you can unlock.
