Share Exchange calendar with outside users

We use outlook 2010 and exchange server 2010.  I have setup the sharing policy in exchange for * domains and assigned the user to the allowed users to share.

I gave the permissions the most available for subject, body, contact, etc...
Yet I get the message:
Calendar sharing is not available with the following entries because of permission settings on your network

I have SET the permissions to allow.  So clearly this is an error.  Any clues as to what I missed, or is MS not allowing this feature unless you by Office pro plus and send in a pint of blood, your first born, and a love letter?

This is becoming very frustrating when they put out instructions on how to setup the sharing and it doesn't work at all.

HELP!!

Try removing your names cache and re selecting from the GAL when setting the users permissions in outlook. It may be just a cached name issue.

Nope.  That is only if the user is INSIDE the organization. This is for an outside user.  I want to share the calendar with a user for example Joe@yourcompany.com, and my domain is @mycompany.com.  You used to be able to publish to microsofts shared calendar service, but that is defunct.  You are supposed to be able to add the domain to your sharing policy in exchange 2010 which I have done, but it still gives me the permission error.

Sorry I misunderstood. Did you set the domains to anonymous. That's how it should be. Maybe give this link a run through. Part 1 is server setup.

Ok i finally broke down and called MS support.  They couldn't figure out why it wasn't working either.  I am awarding the solution to tshearon because that is eventually what lead to the eventual solution.  Although I only wanted to share with one domain, I had to make it anonymous and use the internet calendar sharing as I could not get federation to work.  Thanks.
