Outlook 2007 Calendars - Not exchange server

Posted on 2009-12-22

I have set up emails on Outlook.  I am sharing my calendar with 4 others, via Windows live 'server', > outlook 2007 PUBLISH Calendar.

I signed up myself, and signed up everyone else via windows live (using work emails).

1 user continues however, being asked username and password, and it shuffles through each calendar being shared with him (each users calendar) - this happens a couple times a day.

I just had my computer crash, and i had to restore it, and now I am getting the same issue, it is not updating, and keeps requesting username and password for each email.

The weird thing is, I can see everyone's calendar up to date?  But it seems as though it is unable to publish, and still shuffles through everyone's email - see below:

Windows sign in box:

Enter your user name and password to download:

Runs through were username is with each user that is sharing calendar (So four times).  I can press cancel, or enter in username and windows live server password - doesn't work.

What do I need to check, or fix or do to figure out where the problem lies?

Any suggestions?  Need more info?

    Yes I am, we all are.

    When I go and publish the Calendar:

    The upload of "Calendar" failed. The next upload attempt occurs with the next send/receive. There was a problem uploading the file to server.

    Then the next send receive - runs through everyones calendar asking for password.

    Very frustrating, I can see for the guys here, that this is annoying.  Any further advice?

    So you published your calendar to Office Online or a WebDav Server?

    And you went to each persons PC and Did the Same?
    Or did you somehow Puiblish Their Calendars as well from your PC.

    I went through the Publish Online option.  This took you to a link where via WIndows Live - you set up your email (using business emails) - but you could use your hotmail as well, or set up a hotmial or live id.

    Anyways, I set up mine, on my computer, and each individually on their computers.  So each has the option to publish their calendars willingly (but it does it automatically on random send/receive).  So, what happens is I cannot publish my calendar via automatic publish.  It also errors out, shuffling through each of the 4 coworkers calendars (that were sent to me after I signed everyone up - privately-) - requesting the above (in original Q).

    The answer is this.  Microsoft is a pain.

    You have to login everyday to MSN (or using your windows live id).

    Then you can publish your calendar.

    You can also go to Account Settings > Internet Calendars
    See your internet Calendars.

    You can delete these calendars as well, or re-publish them.

    If you sign off your computer or out of MSN you might re-sign in everytime to ensure you don't get the 1 million pop ups of no connection.  

    Best answer, purchase Microsoft Exchange Server.
