This is my 1st post for skype . I wrote a very similar to this on Microsoft Answers about signing in from your hotmail account via skpe. So far I haven't got no answers!
I have uninstalled Windows Live Messenger 2012 and installed Skype for windows, because I read that Microsoft will plug out the plug for WLM (discontinue) and instead use Skype
Since Microsoft bought Skype and incorporated Skype technologies into their company. Just from curiosity I read that at the moment you won't be able to receive emails when you sign in skype using your hotmail address.
Is Microsoft and Skype working together to make a new version of Skype to have email received via skype when signing in from hotmail account from Skype? Please advice. Thanks.
Email notifications settings are not available in Skype yet.
You can try pinned Hotmail
Or try Trillian
You can also try to repair your WLM installations from the Control panel and use it till March.

I am not using Windows Live Messenger I uninstalled it because I read that WLM will be discountinued and be retired so I installed Skype. I still can't receive my hotmail email message after I sign in to skype using my hotmail address. So I tried it again... I sent myself a email message from hotmail.com signed out, signed in my hotmail address via skype, and it didn't give me a pop up message that I have a new email message waiting for me to be read? No, thanks i don't want to use trillion, because I am very unfamiliar with that because I have never used it before!
Yes i am using the latest version of skype. Would be very helpful for an update for skype the ability for receiving email messages via skype (when signing in with hotmail account).
