Activating Importing Contacts into new Skype ID

I just set up a new Skype ID as the old one didn't really reflect my business anymore. So I backed up my contacts and then imported them into my new Skype which seemed to work but now all my contacts show as not accepted.

I have tried selecting them and re-requesting from the menu but this doesn't work, they are simply not seeing these requests, and it is not because they have ignored the first attempt, they are just not getting them at all. 

I have tried deleting the contacts and resubmitting a request but again, no luck.

How do I get over this block where Skype believes it has sent a request but it hasn't?

I am runing the latest version of Skype and these people are all approved contacts in my old account and in the main, do want to be in my new account.

I have even asked some to request me under my new ID but their requests don't seem to get to me either, it seems that all the people I imported from my old ID have been blocked (even though they do not appear in the block list).

Ok, any help would be very appreciated, thanks.
