    greetings. I have been using skype on my imac for a few years.

    I am now working at a job that involves using skype to transfer calls.
    The version I have doesn't allow me to do this and I would very much appreciate help in finding a version that does so that I will be able to work from home

    many thanks

    Since you don't say what version you're running of anything. Have you checked the Skype website and tried the latest version of the software? Or checked there for answers?

    There's a free version, which you may have, and a pay version, which you may need.

    Simply drag the application to the bin from your Applications folder. Or you use an uninstall app such as AppCleaner.

    From a little research I just done, it seems the feature was removed in Version 5.0.

    Skype seems to be the one you are after.

    System Requirements of Skype
    Mac OS X 10.3 Panther
    Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger (Intel)
    Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger (PowerPC)
    Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard (Intel)
    Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard (PowerPC)

    Additional Requirements
    Mac OS X 10.3.9
    Mac OS X 10.4 PowerPC (PPC)
    Mac OS X 10.4 Intel
    Mac OS X 10.5 PowerPC (PPC)
    Mac OS X 10.5 Intel

    If your computer is operating any of the above versions of OSX you should be ok. If not you might be able to find an old mac on ebay.
