skype says :  
There are a couple of ways you can access your voice messages. If someone has recently left you a message, you will see a notification badge in your system tray and on your Recent tab.

1   Go to the Recent tab and click the contact's name.
 
2    In the conversation window, click the Play button next to the message.

Which is your email client?
Are you using Skype to go?
As you can get your voice messages by calling your Skype To Go number
Look on the voice menu to listen to your voice messages

I am using skype for windows desktop
version 6.18.0.106 (latest)

2    In the conversation window, click the Play button next to the message.  
I see a play bar with a timer. Usually I hear one noise and then the timer keeps going. Previously I would hear a message as I watched the timer scroll through the remaining seconds

after reading the link, I enabled email alert by logging into skype.com but I think that is just an email telling me to check my skype

Which is your email client?
gmail... but why am I now forced to use a third party program to listen to voicemail now

As you can get your voice messages by calling your Skype To Go number
clicking on one program (default skype program was so much easier)


I have skypeIn and skypeOut so I can make and receive phone calls

Sounds like several things
Do you have call timer? If so it may hang up  and the call is not recorded right?

Which phone do you use rgb192, please fill in these details.
As some Skype versions wont work with some phones right

are you using a headset on a laptop? Could be that the playback is not switching to speakers?
Check your settings for playback is not muted and is functioning correctly.

Unfortunately as we cannot see what your setup is and how you are using Skype it's a matter drilling down possibilities.
All your messages with voice all contacts are added correctly.
Everything up to date?
