How do you delete a voicemail message on Skype for OS X? The online how-to here says that you look at the message (forget the ridiculous way it says to find it, which also does not work) in your list, and click the little circle-x to the right on the message. THERE IS NO CIRCLE-X ON THE VOICEMAIL MESSAGE. So far, I can't find any way to delete: No context menu, no menu item, NO CIRCLE-X.
Now, I'm using Skype 5.3.5, and you guys have instructions for Skype 5.0 Mac---AND THE HOW-TO IS WRONG.
So how does one delete a voicemail message?
Solved! Go to Solution.
You are right, the FAQ are wrong. I reported this error to be fixed. Currently you can't delete a Voicemail message, I'm sorry.
I can not even find a Skype folder in <Librry/Application Support>.
The DAT files should be in /Library/Application Support/Skype/<username>/voicemail
This message is quite old.
According to FAQ you can delete voice messages:
After you have listened to a voice message, it is stored locally on your computer (as a .DAT file in ~/Library/Application Support/Skype/<username>/voicemail). This means that you won’t be able to listen to it again if you sign in to Skype on a different computer. To delete a voice message, you will need to delete the .DAT file.

This does not work for me. After deleting the files in ~/Library/Application Support/Skype/<username>/voicemail, the voicemails still appear in skype. I can listen to them again and, when I do, skype again puts the same .dat files in ~/Library/Application Support/Skype/<username>/voicemail.
Contrary to the FAQ, it certainly appears that the voicemail files are stored somewhere remote to my machine, even after I have listened to them. I'd like to delete those files.
I'm running skype downloaded 4 days ago, under OS X 10.7.4.
I agree, THERE SHOULD BE AN EASY, STRAIGHTFORWARD AND EASY TO FIND WAY TO DELETE OLD VOICEMAIL!!!!! Is Skype listening at all?
And they should quit making changes to their user interface just for the sake of making changes. If it doesn't add functionality, folks, just leave it alone, so things work the same way twice when we log in to our account.
