Is there any way to get Skype to show tray notifications only for specific contacts or groups of contacts, rather than for everyone or no one?

There's a shareware Skype Extra called Contact Alarm that claims to do this, but it runs as a separate program, creates a tray icon, and doesn't use Skype's native notifications.

  • Unless Skype adds the feature, it seems the Extra is the only way. And based on the extras API documentation, it doesn't look as though a proper Skype tray notification can be created by an Extra. FYI Extras are going away. – opello Sep 30 '09 at 4:19
