Need To Save Chat History

I need to save the past two years of my chat history with a particular user in html, txt, cvs, or other format that I can print out as a log file.

I have Skype 5.5 (the latest version)

 

/htmlhistory command does not work

 

Please help!

The removal of that command goes on the Top 10 Idiotic Things Skype Has Done Since v4.0. You can find the viable alternatives in this thread:

Everyone who wants this back, vote here for the bug. We all know how closely Skype abides feedback.

There is a very nice free application, SkypeLogView. It will do all the job you want.

I think that it’s also mentioned in the link provided by rseiler.
