    I've sent the question to Skype. Just wondered if any of you guys are seeing this in your log.

    Why is my Skype attempting to access port 143 of 137.193.213.29?

    wb7-129.STUDFB.UniBw-Muenchen.d=137.193.213.29

    inetnum: 137.193.0.0 - 137.193.255.255
    netname: UNIBWMNET
    descr: Universitaet der Bundeswehr Muenchen; Rechenzentrum
    descr: Werner-Heisenberg-Weg 39, D-85579 Neubiberg

    Thanks
    Ian

    Hmm, interesting! Port 143 is usually used to receive E-Mail via IMAP protocol. Are you using IMAP ?
    Are you living in Germany? The term "Bundeswehr" in the address means "German army" :D

    Thomas :)

    No not using IMAP.

    The destination address would seem to be the German equivalent of Sandhurst or Westpoint.

    Heard nothing back from Skype. Hope they do get back as I am intrigued.

    Thought I had the latest but had 78 instead of 84. Skype s/w update was wrong.

    Have installed latest.

    Thanks
