Hi Experts,

I use MS IM and Skype and MS is telling me to merge the two. If I do this how does Skype inform me of an incoming IM message. Does it give an incoming call style ring tone?

Skype runs minimised on my task bar. When an IM comes in what will happen. With existing MS IM a window pops up with the message. So you know a message has arrived. Does skype visually let you know an IM has arrived?
