Windows 7: Outlook 2010 imap address book cannot import to SKYPE

Outlook 2010 imap address book cannot import to SKYPE

Hi there
I'm trying to play around with SKYPE's IM (Instant messaging) on the desktop.

On the SKYPE panel at Import contacts from Outlook it only shows the "Stinking Facebook junk" - however in all the software blurb in the documentation Outlook 2010 support Instant messaging -- just sign in to your IM program when you pop up the contact.

Anybody got SKYPE IM to work with Outlook 2010 (Private users -- at work I'd use LYNC which works flawlessly).

(Any other FREE messaging program that will work with outlook)



Cheers
jimbo

Hi there
Thanks for the info but that's the site I USED and it couldn't find any contacts -- screenshot in previous post resulted.

Still can't get it to work properly. - Maybe I'm getting too old for all "this new fangled" Social media / messaging" stuff.

I've obviously missed something but I haven't a clue.

I'm getting better results with a Linux application !!! but I want the OUTLOOK integration since that's the whole point of the contacts, and while Linux has some good email clients I'm much too dependant on Ms outlook now - both private and for work.


Cheers
