3. if the Mac itself is storing a password, its in a keychain.

(a few programs store passwords separate from Mac OS keychains.)

4. But you have the option not include Skype in Keychain, correct?

And you can still use Skype?

The alert you're getting is not from Skype but from MacOS. It's simply MacOS Keychain asking you if you want it to remember your log-in info. I was hesitant for a long time about doing this with any website, but since I'm using the iPhone now for a lot of transactions (and my use of internet commerce has exploded) it's invaluable.

You can review all your passwords stored in Keychain by going to the Safari preferences and opening the Passwords folder.

Good luck.
