Hi, I just merged my Skype-account with my MSN Messenger one. I use Mountain lion.


First I logged in with my Messenger login, and found both skype and messenger contacts. Talked a bit there. Then I logged out, and the next time I logged in with my Skype login. Then only the Skype contacts were there! Logged out and logged in with my messenger login again. Still only skype! When I click at contacts only skype are there, the messenger ones (some only found via the skype home) show as offline.


How do I import my messenger contacts?

I merged weeks ago and had no problem until yesterday. My msn contacts are gone, on Skype and on MSN. They are still in my contacts of my email.


Please take care of it.

I'm having the same problem and nobody can see me as being online. Also I can send messages and they receive them but they can't reply to messages. Are Skype/MSN doing anything about this?
