"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Like all IM your privacy settings determine who can call or chat
 add contacts to the list anyone who is not added cannot talk.
Is this a group or individuals?

If you want your own skype, you should use your own Lync, now renamed into "Skype for Business"

What is your deployment like? Hosted or on-prem?
If i get it right users from external companies are able to contact you? If this is the case then you need to turn off open federation.
