Windows 7 ultimate 64bit sp1, skype 5.5.0.124

Appearently, sometimes when i send or receive messages via the pc client of skype, they wont actually be sent. they will simply go into some kind of query and be sent later. seems the number of late messages has been increasing recently. right now i'm looking at a conversation and i have 4 messages that are not yet sent. people have also been complaining that they send me messages that i get late.

 

I reinstalled skype but still same problem, i checked my firewalls and skype has access to the net, so not too sure why the messages are getting lost.

 

note that the conversation, buddylist and contact has been blanked out for privacy.

Same here, been doing this for the 2-3 previous versions AND with the new beta (5.7).

Just be aware that messages can only be delivered when both the sender and the receiver are simultaneously Online. Offline messaging is currently not working in Skype.

Exactly... both parties are connected and the messages won't be delivered unless going offline for about a minute and back online. This seems to resend the messages... though it gets annoying doing it EVERYTIME you write something. Fix it.

If you are sending an instant message to a contact who's offline, then you will see the rotating grey circle. Once that contact goes online, he/she will get your instant message.

 

However, if both of you are online and your messages still can't get through, try calling your contact Skype to Skype to get the message through. I don't know the exact explanation behind it, but that's what we often do and it works.

I also have this issue.  I've seen many people complaining about it across versions of Skype on other message strings.

 

I'm not sure when Skype will fix; I don't see any acknowledgment of the problem.

 

I can add that it is specific to the client software, not the chat protocol.  What leads me to say this is that when I have the problem, I switch to a web client (such as IMO.IM) and have no issues.

 

It stinks, but when I have a message I know I MUST get through, I make sure I'm in IMO.IM.

we should all switch to OoVoO... this is a major problem for skype. All these complaints and no better fix, upgrade or solution to do it ourselves. Seems we have to call skype. Waste our time. I only like skype cause the layout is simple and easy. but i cant even use it to chat with my lady in Hawaii and i cant leave notes for her to read on time. She thought i forgot her birthday. Thanks alot Skype.
