How do I get a skype icon to appear in a gmail inbox?

I have a freind who has a Gmail account. In his GMail Inbox List he sees a small Live Skype icon next to some names, and by "live", I mean showing the current Skype status of that person updated to the minute. Additionally, when clicking on the icon, a small menu pops-up with the following options: Start Call, Start Chat..., Send File, Send Voicemail. He wants his account to have this behavior as well. My exchange based email has embedded in the signature a live Skype button and I think this could be making the icon but Gmail does not allow HTML signatures. I also noted my gmail inbox does not display the icon in question for my gmail account. Anybody know the secrets?
