Skype: Get a List of Voicemail, Delete Skype Voicemail

The newer versions of Skype, which include version 4 and above, appear to not provide a way to list or delete voicemail messages. There are two options I have come up with to resolve the issue of managing Skype voicemail messages. I would think that Skype will resolve this issue in the near future however it has already taken longer than I would have thought to provide a solution to users to manage voicemail. I am currently running Skype version 4.0.0.226 so the below information is based off of that Skype version which at the time of writing this article is the most current. I recommend using option two which includes a third party piece of software so you still get the benefits of the latest release of Skype.

Upgrade Wireshark From Version 1.0.2 to Version 1.0.7

Wireshark, previously Ethereal, is a network protocol analyzer that allows you to inspect the packets of hundreds of different protocols. The upgrade process is very straight forward but it doesn’t hurt to mention that it is OK to go ahead and uninstall the previous version during the upgrade. Basically you will be uninstalling your current version of Wireshark (1.0.2 in my case) and then installing the new version (1.0.7). Follow the directions below to complete the Wireshark upgrade process.
