    I have an iMessage conversation with someone that lasted about 3 yrs and I really want to be able to archive those memories. Does anyone know what the best way to do this on a Mac? I want to preserve the formatting, emojis, pictures, voice memos, and everything as much as I can.

    There's a few 3rd party products that do this, I know iMazing has this feature:

    I use iMazing as well, and have been very pleased with it. Worth the price of admission.

    I probably need to update, I'm on major version 1.xx, and it no longer works with the current iOS, I can update for 50% off (and my original license was through a bundle, so I'm sure I paid almost nothing for it).

    If you look around the web, you can find a coupon to help with the upgrade price. I think I paid $20.00 to upgrade to version 2. They had a 50% off upgrade coupon at the time.

    The lastest version is really amazing. Automatic wifi backups (including encrypted) along with many other new features.
