I haven't tried the yahoo messenger client, however, I suspect you want to unzip the file then untar it. Try

$ bunzip2 /path/to/file.tar.bz2
$ tar xvf /path/to/file.tar

You'll then see the data expand and you can take it from there.
Cheers,
J.

Instead of using the yahoo mesenger client you can use GAIM or Kopete which support a lot of IM protocols.
