    Do you use multiple Skype clients?

    OK, my main PC is a Windows Box and I use Skype - all works fine (or as well as can be expected for Windows!)

    However, I also have a Pocket PC and a Mac and I want to use Skype on those too.

    If I go to any other Windows PC and log into Skype, all my contacts appear - brilliant! If I log into Skype on the Mac or my Pocket PC none of my contacts appear (although I can communicate with people by using the find function).

    Does anyone else have this probelm? How do I overcome it? Can you tell that it's annoying me?

    From what I remember when I re-installed and/or used it on my PDA, I had to re-add and re-authorise my contacts. Not sure if newer versions have changed.

    newer versions should get contacts off server but not always if goto settings dir goto skype - user name

    copy contents to dir on computer and in theroy should copy your settings but maybe not as going to pc to mac etc etc
