Hello, colleagues

As many of you may know, MSN Messenger is merging its services into Skype, so I reactivated my Skype account.

I have been using Skype this week, but I am not receiving the notifications I used to receive in Messenger, this is, everytime I had a job proposal from Proz. Is it possible to set-up this feature in Skype?

Thank you in advance.

How did you get your notifications? Apr 25, 2013

I wasn't aware of the existence of a possibility to have ProZ.com notifications sent out via MSN?

Are you perhaps referring to notifications coming in via a Hotmail account linked to your MSN account?

OK, well in that case, I don't know the solution, though you might find it helpful that you can synchronize a Hotmail account into a Gmail account; don't know if that would be any help?

I feel sure MS must have thought of this and put something in place to deal with it!
