Frequently Asked Questions
Memeoirs is the place to render your communications eternal. Use it to gather and make the book of the most relevant online exchanges with your loved ones.
Your Memeoirs is made by selectively publishing the messages and pictures from your contacts that fall into the time frame you choose. In the case of emails, newsletters, account activation e-mails, and all that non-personal mailing will be discarded for you. Also, we try our best to purge the body of the e-mails of redundant content.
You can further make your Memeoirs yours by choosing a style that fits you, creating a fitting cover and adding some context. Once you are satisfied with your book we will produce it and ship it to your doorstep for free. Like re-experiencing the story of your life on an e-reader? Get the digital version. You will be able to inspect a preview that matches the final content of your book, before you order.

Besides Facebook and WhatsApp, we currently support GMail and Hotmail (now called Outlook.com). Some email providers allow you to import your messages into a GMail account, from where you can create your Memeoirs. Read on.
We ask you to choose one or more contacts and a time period. The messages printed will always match this choice. So you can print all the conversations you had with your partner in the year of 2010, say. Currently you cannot choose which images go into the book.
The messages are sorted chronologically with each chapter corresponding to a season of the year.
No, they are not. Our system is able to identify the relevant body of the message (vs. redundant content), and keep just that. In the process footer ads or recurrent lengthy signatures are also removed.
On the preview tab you will see how your book looks like. Although it is low resolution, that preview already matches the final version of your book, the one that will be sent to print. In case you spot something missing, you can change your selections to make sure you end up with the book you idealized.
Our system will look for your received and sent messages, in particular in your Inbox and Sent Mail folders. Make sure the messages you are missing are in those folders, and make sure they are not archived.
In case you are trying to make a book with a Yahoo account you have just imported into GMail, make sure you followed this procedure during the import.
You might also have to activate IMAP access to all folders in your Mailbox that contain relevant messages (and not just some), as described here.
Lastly, if the content of your book is still not the one you have in mind, feel free to contact us. We will be more than happy to help you out.
The most likely explanation is that IMAP is disabled for your GMail account. To enable IMAP follow these instructions. If you have a Google Apps account you might need to ask your IT administrator to enable it for your company.
We print books ranging from 20 to 450 pages.
You can print a book with just one message, but that would hardly be a conversation, wouldn't it? The number of messages you can fit in a book depends on the length of each message. You can try creating a book, and see if you have too many to go beyond the 450 page limit.
Try limiting the number of messages that go into the book by shrinking the time period.
Currently Memeoirs only prints images if they are in a WhatsApp conversation. 1-to-1 or group. In the future we will include images from other services as well. Stay tuned.
Currently Memeoirs works with email, Facebook and WhatsApp. In the future we will be expanding to other kinds of services. Stay tuned.
Most certainly not. We do our best to keep your Memeoirs free from unwanted content like replies, spam or those lengthy forward chains. Most forwarded messages get filtered in the process.
If you want to make a Memeoirs with a Yahoo account, you have to first import your emails in one of our supported providers. You'll find a step-by-step tutorial on how to achieve this here.
We got you covered, too. Essentially you will need to import the messages to a GMail account. Here is a lengthy explanation.
Yes. You can import all your accounts into one GMail account, and create your book with that account. You can learn in more detail how to here.
Memeoirs connects to your mailbox or Facebook account and creates a book from the available messages. Unless your messages are in a mailbox from one of our supported providers, or on Facebook, we cannot create a book for you. The exception to this is WhatsApp, where you'll be able to create a book with a conversation you have emailed to yourself in the past.
Yes. Memeoirs fully supports languages with latin characters, and it has been thoroughly tested in English. So, unless you have a Greek pen friend, or a lost Russian cousin, you should be good. Nonetheless, full support for internationalization is also coming.
The process of generating your Memeoirs is fully automatic, which means no human intervenes in the creation of your book. Memeoirs does not store any of your data permanently, including your login credentials, your messages or your contacts. None of your personal information will ever be used for commercial purposes.
We value our privacy immensely, and respect yours accordingly. Abusing your data in any way would strongly violate the on-line principles we believe in, and stand for.
