Adding Skype name to Outlook Contacts

Is there a way to add a Skype name to the outlook contact list under the Home field, and manualy add the connection for that outlook contact field to automatically video call tha skype user.

I have tried the Skype email toolbar. It shows the toolbar on everything, boss dosn't like it.

He only wants to be able to open his contact list, open the users contact info and clik on the field. Is this possible?

Re: Adding Skype name to Outlook Contacts

A basic simple thing seems impossible: I want to edit present contact details by adding Skype name. The menu only gives choices of "home, Mobile or other" which is already correct and recorded. I don't want to change those. I simply want to add Skype!

Re: Adding Skype name to Outlook Contacts

You cannot add Skype to your contact details if this contact isn’t your Skype-to-Skype contact. What kind of icon can you see in the contact list for this contact? If the icon has a white telephone image inside a green cloud, then he/she isn’t your Skype-to-Skype contact.

Agree. Simple request and yet so obvious.
