The Skype protocol is a trade secret and I believe that the Skype API
licensing is incompatible with including Skype support in a GPL licensed
program, like Pidgin.
However, if you looked at the pidgin web site you would have found that
there is a third party plugin that, at least at some time, claimed to
support Skype API: http://code.google.com/p/skype4pidgin/
Alternatively, you could ask Microsoft to publish the Skype protocol
specification, but don't hold your breath.
Please consider using services based on more open protocols.
Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
