I have suddenly found that weird little Skype icons are suddenly appearing with phone numbers in my newsletters and the digits are automatically turned "skype blue." VERY ANNOYING. Can you tell me what's going on? See attached image.

Hey there! I honestly have not seen the Skype blue appear on a phone number. I know on some mobile devices a phone number will appear as a link which you’re able to click to actually dial the number. Can you please let me know which email program you’re seeing this in? I sent myself a test here and the Skype is not appearing there in the footer, so it looks like this is an individual setting on your computer or device which you’re viewing this email. I apologize I’m not well versed on Skype, but digging around a bit online I see Skype users may notice phone numbers being highlighted. There should be an option in which you’re able to disable this though.

Hopefully this helps, but please let me know if you have any questions.

Good afternoon! I wanted to pass along some additional information one of my colleagues found regarding that Skype button. It looks like Skype gives the option of creating a custom button in which Skype will generate code that you're able to place into a website. 

I hope this helps give some direction with that call button, but please let me know if I can assist further.
