Outlook 2010 - "Access to the resource was denied. If you have signed into and saved your Windows LIve ID with a Web site ......

Starting today, when I log into my Outlook 2010 email I'm getting this message ... "Access to the resource was denied. If you have signed into and saved your Windows Live ID with a Web site, sign out of that Web site, and then try this operation again." We have a shared calendar that is uploaded to one of our Google accounts, but nothing to do with my Microsoft Live ID. I logged into my Microsoft account and then logged out of the account.

This popup has to do with the shared calendar.  The steps to fix are rather lengthy and detailed here

I suspect the above will work for Outlook 2010 since it worked on Outlook 2007.

Jcimarron - we saw this fix as well, and it doesn't seem to apply since we're not using our Windows Live ID for anything. However, we are syncing my Outlook calendar with Google using a free program called "Calendar Sync". It works very well and does exactly what we need. As an experiment we uninstalled the Calendar Sync program from my workstation and the problem went away. We added the program back and the problem reappeared. Since this program, and the Google account to which we're syncing have nothing to do with my Windows Live ID, I don't see how they're inter-connected. The calendar sync program is started up manually on my workstation to accomplish a daily syncing task so my employees know what their day looks like. Part of the process is to log into the Google account via the Calendar Sync interface. We noticed that once the Calendar Sync interface is logged into the Google account, I can close Outlook and the re-open it and the error message does not appear. From that, it seems that the error message is generated by the fact that we may not be logged into the Google account via the Calendar sync program first thing in the morning, thus causing this error message to appear. It's really not a Live ID problem. Outlook just thinks it is. What do you think?

It seems you have found out how to avoid the problem.  Don't push your luck in trying to figure out why.  :)
