Re: Advance Search Contact

Skype is hopeless - I have been writing to them about this for a couple of years at least. It is ESSENTIAL that Skype restores this capability, otherwise the value of the program is greatly reduced. It also makes it extremely difficult to put new posts onto the forum - whole program is becoming annoying.

Re: Advance Search Contact

Skype has removed the advance search option due to some users (scammers, spammers, phishers, etc), who are abusing that feature.  Although that feature is made for legitimate users, it was also a very effective tool for suspicious users to easily find their closest prospects.

[ Edited ]

i found one here

 

http://www.powergramo.com/Skype/Skype%204.2.0.187.exe

 

there are even older versions of it

i don't know if they will still work though, but its worth a try if you want 4.2

 

EDIT

 

Actualy found this post by primeover to get the older versions from the skype website

Re: Advance Search Contact

We need the ability to search by just skype id.  The current search that looks at names, emails, and skype id returns to many results.

Oh, I see. And scammers are too dumb to download v4.2 (or read this thread)?
