[Resolved] Skype for Mac login issues
Update on 29.10.2010
We have just released a hotfix to Skype 2.8 for Mac which resolves the login problems.
We apologize once again for the trouble caused.
Some of you may be experiencing login issues with Skype 2.8 for Mac.
We are working hard to resolve this issue quickly. We will post further updates here until the issue has been resolved.
Affected are users who have either just installed Skype 2.8 for Mac on their computers for first time or have deleted the Skype preferences folder located at ~/Library/Application Support/Skype.
If you are an affected user, then you will likely experience a very slow first login to Skype, or Skype login may fail with an error message about “login timeout” or “internet connection issue”.
The issue should not impact existing Mac users who have recently logged into Skype, only new users who have just downloaded Skype 2.8 for Mac for the first time or who have deleted the above mentioned folder.
Apologies if you are experiencing these issues and thanks for your patience.
Skype for Mac team.
