At the end of 2009, there was an issue with the Microsoft Outlook Calendar Sharing service, which enables Publish to Office Online in Microsoft Office Outlook 2007. This issue delayed or prevented customers from publishing a calendar to the service.
The problem was resolved in early January and we are implementing procedures to prevent a similar reoccurrence. We want to share some background on why this outage occurred.
As part of preparing the Microsoft Outlook 2010 version of the Calendar Sharing service, a configuration error was introduced on December 21, 2009, on the pre-production version of the 2010 Calendar Sharing service. An unintended side effect of this change also affected the production service. This prevented some Outlook 2007 customers from being able to login through Outlook and publish a new calendar or update existing ones.
Although customers immediately reported the issue through our support forums on TechNet, the automated monitoring system we use to determine if the service is up and working failed to detect this outage. This delayed our ability to find and resolve the issue in a timely manner.
By January 3, 2010, the issue was resolved for all customers. Everyone should be able to successfully publish calendars to the Calendar Sharing service.
Moving forward, we are taking steps to improve our automated monitoring to ensure that this specific scenario is detected. We are also reviewing other potential areas where our monitoring might be inadequate to detect outages in the service.
We are also changing our internal testing and deployment process for the service to ensure that changes for a new version of the service do not affect existing customers.
We apologize for any inconvenience this service outage might have caused.

I am also having a problem publishing my calendar on the internet.
Unable to access the Outlook Calendar Sharing Service through My Office Online and therefore am unable to publish my calendar in Outlook 2010.
I still can not work with the service. "Unable to upload to the server" and unable to connect to a new created account. Please check this, it´s really important for uns. Thanks
I can't publish either - I had the problem in late Dec/early Jan, which I used the work around to fix. It appears same issue has re-occured, but I can no longer find the fix.
Now, I can’t even access the Outlook Calendar Sharing Service on office.com.
This seems to be a problem again... Microsoft's Calendar Sharing Service seemed to stop about 24 hours ago and I can't even look at it online at calendars.office.microsoft.com. Calendar sharing is critical for me, and I therefore appreciate any quick solutions on this issue. Many thanks!
From 2/17 to 2/18, the Calendar Sharing Service has been experiencing some hiccups in the service. The issue has been resolved, and the ability to share calendars has been restored. Thanks,

The Calendar Sharing Service is down again.
If you are experiencing problems with the Calendar Sharing Service, please post your calendar sharing problems here along with information on what you are seeing. www.microsoft.com/.../default.mspx Thanks,
After going to the link provided by Christian, I am able to view the comments, but cannot add an item or reply to an existing item. When attempting to reply, I'm taken to a page telling me the sight is not a Windows Live ID site. When I try and add a new item, the window never opens. Anyway, I'm still getting the same error when attempting to use the Outlook Calendar Sharing Service... "Calendar subscription error. There's a problem subscribing to calendars right now. Please try again later."
Same error as everyone else: "Calendar subscription error. There's a problem subscribing to calendars right now. Please try again later."
I'm going to chime in here too. Last week I could not even publish a calendar. Now that is working again but I can't view the published calendar. If I try to view it the old way, I get redirected to an Office Online page that says things are changing. If I try to view it the proposed way (with a Windows Live subscription), I get the error others are reporting above: "Calendar subscription error. There's a problem subscribing to calendars right now. Please try again later."
Same issue here for me as well, initially couldn't publish, now can publish but can't view on Windows Live Calendar or subscribe to it on my iCal. Error on Windows Live Calendar is: Calendar subscription error There's a problem subscribing to calendars right now. Please try again later.
Working with the Windows Live Calendar team, we were able to resolve the issue that prevented the subscribing of online calendars via Windows Live Calendar. That being said, you can only use Windows Live Calendar to subscribe to Public calendars; meaning when you publish your calendar you must select the 'Anyone can subscribe to this calendar' field. If you are receiving the following error: "Calendar subscription error. There's a problem subscribing to calendars right now. Please try again later." It is most likely the calendar you are trying to subscribe to is a privately published calendar, which can only be viewed via Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010. Thanks,
I too am having problems with the outlook 2010 calendar sharing. When trying to access my shared calendar via the web site it doesnt even attempt to show my calendar, instead it shows this page:
