    I'm using Skype on my iPhone without any issues. My Skype account is linked to my Microsoft account, so i can log in with my MS credentials on all devices.

    Yesterday i installed Skype for Mac on my iMac and added the needed port to my router for forwarding.

    Problem: Skype won't let me log in neither with my MS nor my Skype credentials. I even unlinked my account and changed my password. On my iPhone everything is still fine, the OSX app won't move a bit. The error message is either "Skype can't connect" or "Wrong password".

    Is there anything else you have to watch out for, when using Skype for Mac? Or is this a common problem when using the same account on numerous devices?

    EDIT:
    The issue occurs also, when i'm logged out on my iPhone.

    Didn't help, switched to Google Hangouts. No issues.
