As far as I know, Skype never had this feature to begin with. Microsoft acts like this is an upgrade but in reality it's a huge step backwards. They just screwed all their loyal MSN/Windows Live messenger users who used the program for email notifications and such. I remember actually being happy about Microsoft purchasing Skype... but little did I know it would lead to this.
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.

The pinned hotmail/outlook.com is what I am using now but the numerical updates/unread mail count is not working so it is useless in that regard. Never the less, I appreciate you trying to give us some solutions. But I would still very much like to see the impressive messaging capabilities from MSN/Windows Live Messenger brought over to Skype. What a waste of a great program to just kill it like this...
please help me to open my live messenger i can.t open it after i merge with skype
If you can't reach your Live messenger contacts after doing the merger with Skype there is a way to restore your Windows Live Messenger and be able to keep using it till around March 2014. Just follow the guide in this thread.... http://community.skype.com/t5/Live-Messenger/Guide
Many of us on this forum ave already done this and it works just fine. Hopefully by next year Skype will ave some of the features we enjoyed with WLM.
On Windows 7 all you have to do to access your hotmail email is to go to "start", In the search field, type Windows Live Mail and highlight it. It should find WLM in Program Files, right click WLM and "send to desktop create shortcut". You should now have the Windows Live Mail icon on your desktop. Double click the icon and enter your entire hotmail email address, enter your hotmail password and sign in. On the WLM window, click on 'add an email account' and enter the info once again. In order to put your password in, you will have to tick the box that says 'remember my password' even if you don't want it to remember your password. Once you enter the password, you can remove the tick mark if you like. If you choose not to have it remember your password, be prepared to enter your addy & password a few times until WLM is set up. Enter whatever display name you choose (I never use my real name). I didn't tick the box to manually configure server settings because I don't have a clue how to do that. At some point, it will ask if you want WLM to be your default email. The only time I ever found this necessary was when I was at certain websites and I wanted to do an email to them. Occasionally, I would get the error message that I didn't have an email set up and I could never figure out why I'd get that message since I did have emails set up on my computer. Apparently, it wasn't the 'right' email (for them). So I suppose you can decide at that point if you want it to be your default or not. Hope I didn't leave out any steps. It seems not much thought was given to how this merge with Skype was going to affect the users. After all, Skype is a messenger with no email options at this time. Took me all this time to discover WLM. Good luck
