You have created a second user account. One is your normal Skype, the second is a Skype account based on the Microsoft address. Two different accounts = two different contact folders. (And no real way to merge them.) Pick one and use it or log back and forth as it suits you. Just because you had to create a password ***** not mean you have to use it. If you want to run both Skype accounts, see link below:
