    Hello Group
    Is it possible that people in my WLM address book know I have a Skype
    account.
    I have used Skype THREE times since installing last December.
    My son is the only one who knows and who I talk to.
    Today whilst using Skype I had pop-ups saying Skype members wanted to
    contact me etc.
    The Skype members are in my WLM address book.
    I don't use my name on Skype either.
    Thanks for reading
    John

    No, there is no connection between Skype and Windows Live Mail.
    However, if you use Windows Live Messenger, all bets are off.
    Microsoft has gone on a binge to connect it with everything under the sun.

    People can also search you on Skype and if you have configured
    your skype to show "online". Any jobless nutter on the planet will
    ring you because you are online and it is free for them!
