    If someone has appeared as away on Skype for the past few months, but their last activity was 3 months ago and they haven't updated their current location, will they receive my message if I send them one, or are they in fact offline or what?

    They will receive the message. However, if their last activity was 3 months ago, they may have uninstalled Skype or something and hence won't be able to read it until it's installed again.

    If their last activity on skype was 3 months ago then it is likely that they no longer use the account. If you message them, they may receive the message if the account is still linked to their phone but they will not receive it on their computer etc unless they log into their account.

    If they uninstalled it then shouldn't they appear offline?

    Sorry my bad. I meant something along the lines of no longer using the program.

    If you can send a screenshot of what you mean by last active 3 months ago that will help.
