    Today, the 3CX skypeconnect don't support calls to skype ID;
    any special carracter in the number dialed is removed from the calledIT in the SIP call on the trunk.
    You can only call number.
    It would be nice for users to use their 3CX phone to call anyone having a skype account without having the need to have his own skype account and skype installed and configured;

    Dreaming about video as well...

    Is that now supported by Skype? Came across this (may be out of date),

    https://kb.uwex.uwc.edu/skype-connectivity-with-skype-for-business-%28lync%29

    which suggests that you must use the Skype users Microsoft account address rather than the Skype ID. Allowing alpha digits to be sent may very well allow this to work.
