    IN a related note, it looks like there is a delay of between 10-15 minutes from getting/sending a message on your phone to having it backed up and visible online. Not too shabby!

    I got it by clicking on the link in the post, then adding the page=3 part at the end in the window that the link opened.
    The 'find all text message history' doesn't work though.

    https://blu002.mail.live.com/default.aspx?fid=b#3 doesn't appear to work in Australia....I cannot view a thing. I'm desperate. Need to get my client sms messages and my replies onto their electronic files as a legal record of our communications. Cannot believe that Nokia and MS haven't woken up to the fact that smart phones are used for business. My Lumia 920 might as well be a Fysher Price music box.

    didn't work for me initially..but after a few tries it worked.

    Here's what I did.

    I went to outlook.com, clicked the messaging history link and manually added page=3 after the given URL which is https://blu172.mail.live.com/?n=1787569406&fid=b#

    I have been trying for the last week and a half and it hasn't worked for me once yet. When you kept trying did you just cut and paste over and over or refresh? Did you try at different times of day?

    I have no clue what I did, but suddenly I had some unread messages under 'Quick View' which contained photos. Opening one of those messages, brought this sight upon my very eyes.

    Is this the hidden feature we're so eagerly on the hunt for?

    Well, If you're able to find any link or reasonable connection between adding a Gmail account as a 'send-receive' account, you have the answer.

    In that case, it's a rather pesky workaround!

    Managed to find 2 SMS messages this morning while using the outlook.com search feature. That sent me down this rabbit hole of annoyance as I tried to find the rest of my messages. Have not been able to replicate the result by using the search and so far I've had no success with any of the suggestions in this thread.

    It'll be very nice when/if this is properly implemented

    This is what works for me. If I select contact, I can see some messages. If at the end of the url I change &qvid=5 with &qvid=3, I can see 80 % of my messages. I still have to figure out what the reason I don't see all messages. All search methods don't work for me, even changing different browser.

    Can you give full link? I don't know exactly where you are selecting a contact. I still only see facebook messages/email and no contacts that have sent texts. Also anywhere I click I can't get the url to show &qvid=5.

ID:	31858Here is the link: https://blu002.mail.live.com/
    Once you are there, select Contact and it should change url with this ending: &fid=&qvid=5. If you dont see any changes, close IE and reopen it. Then, change 5 with 3. From my side, I only see sms messages, I am not sure if because I have a setting with automatic backup or there is something else. Like I said on my previous message, there are almost the 80% of the messages, not sure why I dont see a remaining 20%, Since I bought the HTC phone last december.

    They seem to have changed this again - 'Contacts' is now a separate page, not a Quick View.

    I can't get it to work.
