Last seen date and time isn't working for one contact.....

So usually when I hover over a contacts name in the 'recent conversations' column, a small box pops up with their online status, current local time, and date and time of last seen....

 

But for one of my contacts it isn't showing anything, the little box pops up but all it says is their screen name?

 

Any ideas? 

 

I'm running the latest version of skype on mac.

Please use plain text.

The only ("True") method to test if you have been blocked is.

 

1. The Contact must have been added to your contact list.

2. You must have Skype voicemail.

3. Right click on the Contact name and choose ("Send Voicemail"). If it fails you have been blocked by that contact.

the following is behavior for the WINDOWS client, since that is what this particular forum is for

 

if the contact is online now, then you will not see 'last seen' by hovering mouse pointer on status icon for a contact, but if contact has not been seen online BY THIS PARTICULAR CLIENT in a very long time, then you will also not see 'last seen' date
