I posted this question here and in a response it was suggested I post in this forum.

 

I use Skype on my home iMac also during the week when I'm contracting onsite, this is using the clients Skype preferred account settings, I now work from home and would like to have both accounts added to my iMac in a single Skype instance.

@Simon_Platten You can't be signed in to two Skype accounts on the same computer.  The best way would be to use a second computer or a virtual machine on the Mac.
