    Dear All,

    I am trying to find a script or if someone could help me write one for Skype. What i would like to do is Auto reply if some (not all) of my contacts get in touch with me via message on Skype. I don't want to block them.

    is there a way possible.

    cheers.

    OK I don't know how to do this but if I were you I would start looking whether Skype has AppleScript actions or not.

    i found that it does. but am new to applescript. any hints on how to use it.

    what i wanna do on Skype:

    auto reply by message certain contacts when ever they try and send me message. I don't want to block them. it is basically when I am working, and I don't want to be disturbed, but still need to be on Skype.

    example, i am on Skype, and you send me a message, and the apple script is working, then the script auto replies something which I wanna say back to you.

    secondly, how to enable the script when i turn on Skype (do i need to do it manually or is there a way to do it automatically), and also how to disable it (when I am back at home, do i need to quit Skype and then open the application again or is it possible to disable without that option).

    thirdly, it should show me the messages as unread to be sure that I read them at the end of the day…
