Setting up SMS with my Online Number???

I'm wondering if I can set up to where I can send SMS messages from my "Online Number" and that the person who receives the message can reply back to THAT number.  Is this possible?

 

On my Mac, I go to Preferences > Messaging and then I go to "Change Number" to my Skype Online Number, but then it says it isn't a valid number...  ?  Why?!

 

Please Help!!

You can't use Skype's Online Numbers for SMS messages sent from Skype.  You can use a mobile number from most countries (excluding Japan and Mexico), provided you go through the two-step SMS verification process.  Skype's Online Numbers are set up either as landline numbers or special Voice-over-IP numbers, neither of which are configured to receive SMS messages.
