Import contacts into Skype
You can import contacts from email addresses to make sure you have a sizeable contact list.
To do this, open up the Skype main window and then click on “contacts”, and then “import contacts”. You’re then able to choose which email address you want to use to import those contacts.
After you choose an email address and input your details, you can then choose individually which contacts you want to import.
When you’re done, you can then invite those people to use Skype.
You’re also better off renaming those users in Skype once they join, as you don’t want to be sorting people by their user name instead of their real name.
