Pending Instant Messages

[ Edited ]

I need help. I am using Mac and using Skype 5.3. I am sending instant messages to one contact on my list I can see is online by the green icon, but all my messages to this contact remains "pending". All my other contacts works fine and messages display the time they were sent. Did this contact somehow stop my messages? without blocking me since I can see the contact is online. All answers are appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Yes, two possibilities:

- the Contact blocks you

- the Contact is offline

Please verify from the Contact either by phone or by email as no one in this Support can actually tell you what that Contact has done.

Cheers!

Re: Pending Instant Messages

Can someone help me with this problem please?

I was talking to a friend yesterday using IM on skype, after a while it suddenly started to show "pending" next to each message I sent. And I couldn't recieve any message anymore.

I tried to have a video call or a voice call, but still nothing worked.

The person was certainly online and didn't block me either, I tried sending messages to other people and I got "pending" again. The problem persists today!

What can I do? I have the newest skype which i updated yesterday. Here's an example of the pending problem.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Re: Pending Instant Messages

I've experiencing some problems with my skype.

 

I'm online and my contact is online as well. However, when I send IMs to my contact it shows as pending.

 

I know I'm not blocked by my contact.

 

HELP!

Re: Pending Instant Messages

Same here, latest version on Mac.  Everyone is offline, all messages stay pending.  

 

What's the deal?

Re: Pending Instant Messages

I've had the same problem with one particular contact for a very long time. I can see she's online, but if I send a message it just says pending and never goes through. In other threads people have suggested this means the contact blocked or deleted you - I know she hasn't deleted me because if she had, her status would say "pending contact request," and if she had blocked me she would appear as offline.

 

This is pretty dang irritating, especially since this has been such a widespread problem for so long. Have the devs even addressed this at all?
