Re: FW: A Skype update may be required

Octavian Rasnita

Yesterday somebody tried to send me a file by Skype (7) for more times but I couldn't receive it. I also tried to send a file as a test, but I received the message that the file couldn't be sent. With no reason why.
So in reality the full support for Skype 7 might be stopped before November 1 and we might need to pass to the worse version right now.
I don't know if this file sending problem occurs for all Skype users, but if you need to be able to send/receive files, you might need to check it.
