Currently I show my Skype username in my Outlook email signature but I would like, if possible to make my username into a clickable link that allowed recipients to add me to their Skype contacts.
Similar functionality is available with a Facebook link, though this is a web-app.
Solved! Go to Solution.

This seems to work, it prompts the user to allow their web browser/client to allow the action to proceed, but it does work: <a href="skype:SKYPENAME?add">SKYPENAME</a>
Just replace SKYPENAME with yours.
If editing in Word, or similar, the link you want to add is just skype:SKYPENAME?add the above is the actual HTML that makes it work.
CORRECTION: only works in html, but Gmail strips it out by the looks of it, which is disappointing!
I cannot make ir work. Already try to place: <a href="skype:SKYPENAME?add">SKYPENAME</a> ; in the outlook signature. I´m using JPG "buttons" to place the link with no sucess. When I place the cursor above the jpg shows the link but it doesn´t open. Can anyone please help.
When I do this in the "Signatures" area of Outlook 2013, it displays the literal text I have entered.
Is there a way to copy an image I can paste in to the signature file, with the link embedded?
