Shared Calendaring Max Connections


K

Katie Mills

My coworker setup a shared calendar in Outlook 2007. He added/emailed the
initial employees he wished to share with and everything worked correctly.
When he went to invite more people to share his calendar later, it gives an
error when trying to send the subscribe email, "Error while preparing to send
sharing message. Server returned an error." He has tried to add several
people, each of whom have shared their calendars in the past. SP2 has been
installed.
Do you think it could have something to do with the Outlook max connections?
He already has quite a few (20+?). I could not find documentation on this.

How is he sharing it? There shouldn't be limitations if he's using Exchange
server and sharing with other members of the server but their might be
limitations if using office online.

With office online you need to cancel the share and resend with the new
members.

Thanks for the help!
We do not have Exchange server. As far as I know, all of the people he's
sharing with are company employees on the same server. I tried to replicate
the error on my computer and could add additional calendar sharers after an
initial share and with users actively accessing my calendar.
I'm sure that if my coworker cancels the share and re-shares that would
break all his connections, right? so my coworker would have to resend to the
entire list. If I cannot replicate this error, it must be a bug in Outlook or
with Windows Live?

Exactly, if he breaks the share, he needs to resend it. I don’t know if
there is a limitation in the number of people you can share with on windows
live - but there easily could be as it was not designed to be shared with a
large number of people.
