    Hi
    Just succesfully installed 3cx for skype
    Any (incoming) call to my Skype account, makes my phone ring and conversation takes place correctly.

    But, how about manage outgoing calls to Skype world from my phone ???
    Should I compile a Skype phonebook in my 3cx system ??
    How Skype manages it ??
    Skype versions previous to 4 were capable of a sort of per user speed dial number.
    This feature is no more available now.....(and skype 4 or higher is requested by 3cx for Skype)

    Any info please ???

    Thank you.

    I'm sure that there are other ways of doing it, but as I have only a few of Skype users that I call I put them in my speed call list, which, is just a series of 3 digit outbound rules that ,in my case, begin with 1.

    Rule called... john doe Skype, dial 123, 3 digits long, strip 3, substitute john.doe
