WinJab probably does this, so you could just view the debug XML to see
what is passed back and forth between the client and the server. If that
does not work for you, I can post the XML for you.

Oh, perhaps I misunderstood your question. Basically you want to archive
all messages on the server? Right now you can't do that. And in any
case, mod_offline has limits to the number of messages you can store.
