  3. Would like to switch between my 3 international Skype caller ID's so that a local ID comes and they have a local number to return the call

    I make frequent calls to the UK, Australia and New Zealand and i live in the USA. I have a skype number for each of these countries so that people can call me back on a local vs an international number. I would like to be able to switch between country caller ID's so that it is not just showing a UK skype number wherever I call.
    It would be great to switch to Aus skype number as caller ID when calling clients in Australia etc.

  4. proxy.pac does not work

    Skype 8.53.0.85 doesn't read proxy settings
    Hi !
    I've uppgraded all the Skype Desktop applications at my workplace from 7.32.104 to 8.553.85 and now it does not recognize the Proxy setting.
    We use a Proxy.pac file for configuration and that does'nt work.

    If I set our config direct in internet setting then it work.

    Please fix this or tell me what version I can use where Proxy.pac file settings work…
    I also tried version 8.55.0.141 but it did not work…

    Regards
    Lars Oscarsson

  6. international caller ID

    Dear Engineers
    I am a UK resident living and breathing in the UK. I am not an international customer. So why does the number I set in the Caller ID come us as “International” and completely ignore what I asked it to do.
    Your chat blamed all the other phone services but that’s a rubbish answer as why would Skype let its paying customers be seen as a Cold Caller or a Spammer? This is exactly what’s happening to those who now refuse my calls.
    I use a PC Skype App the latest one and my caller ID is set…

  7. Very unhappy

    Hi, unfortunately I am very unhappy with the support of Skype. I just want to cancel my Skype account and keep the e-mail to use for office and this is not possible to Microsoft support

    I have another account of Skype and there's no reason to keep to Skype accounts.

    Was a very bad support, take so much time to say it's not possible.

    Waiting forward

  9. As a meeting organizer, I would like to all or part of the participants

    It happens that some of the participants forget to put their mike on mute and it disturbs the meeting. As a meeting organizer, I would like to see where the noise comes from and be able to mute it. Also during a presentation I would like to mute and unmute all or some of the participants, in order to ensure a clear sound for all listeners and avoid interruptions or allow the asking of questions.

  16. API Access

    Can someone at the Mighty Microsoft explain why they now do not allow access to API. This seems a backward step and will only heighten the exit from Skype. Does Microsoft have a hidden agenda to kill Skype off??

  17. Preferences for receiving promotional emails from Skype

    I receive advertisement from Skype telling me to renew a subscription that I have cancelled, and I cannot find any way to stop the delivery of these messages. If this is indeed not possible, it is not acceptable. If it is already possible, you should make it much easier to find, to start with with a link at the bottom of the promotional email. Isn't there a law for this?

  19. Skype sign you out when ideling | Prevent this behavior.

    Skype client when idling signs you out and sets it self as offline until you open Skype as an active window in Windows OS. The means that no one can call or contact you over Skype chat because in offline mode nothing obviously gets through. This behavior should be corrected so that Skype is always online when you set it to "green status" even if the computer is idling or goes into Screensaver mode. it is really crazy that Skype signs you out automatically and it should not be like this!
