I changed many times the privacy settings to accept messages only from my contacts in skype preferences.
after I close this setting jump back to everyone and I keep receiving annoying messages all the time.
I found many people with the same problem in skype forum, without solution...
is there any solution for this problem.

    1. Select Skype->Preference->Privacy.
    2. Set all options to "Contacts"
    3. Exit then, restart Skype.
    4. The "Allow Messages From" setting was not saved and is reset back to "Anyone" .


    1. Quit Skype.
    2. Delete the file User/Library/Preferences/
    3. Launch Skype.

    Sorry Dude, but none of these options work out.

    option 1) Allow Messages from: always reset back to Anyone after I restart skype.

    option 2) it just start skype as it was the first time I used it, but the option Allow Messages from: comes as Anyone...
