I just obtained a skype account. I want to Skype with someone. What address do I give them? Just my username or my user name with a suffix attached? In other words, what is my full skype address?

I'm not sure what kind of suffix you are referring to (@live/hotmail/etc?). Usually your Skype/Microsoft account name should suffice.  If at any time you are unsure, try searching for yourself in the Skype directory (by adding a contact).  Whichever name finds you would be a valid name to relay to your future contact.  I tried both my Microsoft account name and my Microsoft Hotmail e-mail address and both of them found my same account.

Just your Skype name (That's the username you use to sign in to Skype) is enough for others to find and add you as a contact on Skype.

Since Skype 6.2 version it’s not possible to search for your own Skype name.


If I search for jeff-levy using my Skype, I can find a Skype user from South   Africa. Is it you?
