If both of you are online and can't see each other, and your messages are not going through, try calling your contact Skype to Skype to get the message through. I don't know the exact explanation behind it, but that's what we often do and it works.

Someone in my account is online.but i see his status is offline.


Some users choose to have there status as offline even when they are actually online. It is an "status" option that a user chooses from either the web interface or the actual Google Talk program.

Instant messaging not working on skype


If you are sending an instant message to a contact who's offline, then you will see the rotating grey circle. Once that contact goes online, he/she will get your instant message.
However, if both of you are online and your messages still can't get through, try calling your contact Skype to Skype to get the message through. I don't know the exact explanation behind it, but that's what we often do and it works.

Shows everyone is offline and also tells them when they try to send me an instant message that i am offline


it will really show you're offline if your status is invisible mode. are you receiving IM from anyone of your contacts? or have you tried sending an IM to them? if yes, what happened? did they receive your message or did you receive their message? please post back so i can help you isolate the problem.

Your status may be set to "invisible," which means you may appear offline when you are truly online.

My friend is on hotmail and they appear offline anytime


You can be logged into hotmail messenger and choose how you want to appear to your contacts. The 'status' optains range from:
Available
Busy
Away
Appear offline
Although you may choose to appear offline, you are still logged in can send and recieve messages. All it does is discourage contacts from sending you messages when you are busy.
