I'm having quite an issue here...

As most of us know, Skype recently merged with Windows Messenger.
So I installed the latest version of Skype and got rid of my Windows Messenger, as I thought they were both integrated nicely.

- However... despite being able to import all my previous Windows Messenger-contacts into Skype, and being able to log into Skype through my Windows Messenger login.
I'm UNABLE to add any new Windows Messenger contacts!
(I mean NEW contacts)

Is it just me, or is Skype currently unable to add new Windows Messenger contacts?
There are still a lot of people out there why only use Windows Messenger, so we SHOULD be able to add them on Skype... since I though Skype/Windows Messenger were now integrated??????

* Can someone help me?
(how do I add new Windows Messenger contacts to my Skype)

You can't add new Windows Messenger contacts to Skype. I had same issue, so I just reinstalled Windows Messenger.
