How can another addon read those messages? They are not SAY, not SYSTEM, not Channel anything.

I have even tried setprinthandler(newPrintHandler) did not do anything.
Have a look at something like WIM ( Wow Instant Messenger ) .. Not sure if it is up to date but I recall it keep ing a record of the chat windows. The DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME I believe is the equivalent of ChatFrame1. I suspect what they do is make a copy of the message being received by the chat window and store it in a local table and then save that table out .. then when you log back in do the reverse to get it back into the window as if it was a new message.
