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.

 

Any ideas?

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!

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?
