    Error connecting to WL Calendar

    I have been getting "There was an error when attempting to connect to the
    Windows Live Calendar service. If the error persists, check to see if there's
    an upgrade of Windows Live Mail available or contact a service
    representative."

    Any help appreciated.....

    This is a known issue that we're working on. We are hitting capacity limits
    on our servers and are working to increase capacity.

    I am also getting "There was an error when attempting to connect to the
    Windows Live Calendar service. If the error persists, check to see if there's
    an upgrade of Windows Live Mail available or contact a service
    representative." each time I check my mail. Is there anyway I can uninstall
    the calendar service and just keep Windows Live Mail. I have no need of the
    calendar and it is becoming a real nuisance.

    to microsoft, I have received replies BUT the replies send me to a BLANK web
    page!! so apart from this 'we are working on it' is the only replies Ive been
    able to see. and the error as Mr Clark says is bloody annoying...... WHEN
    will you increase the space as its been OVER A MONTH now.

    Re: Error connecting to WL Calendar

    The server was updated this week to fix the 100% CPU error that users were
    seeing. Can you confirm that you don't see 100% CPU for 2.5 minutes before
    the error dialog comes up?

    I'd guess you're hitting a different issue. Can you turn on calendar logging
    (tools->options->Advanced->Maintence->calendar check box) cause a failed
    calendar sync and send me(geoffcl@xxxxxx) your windowlivemail.log
    file? I can help figure out what's going on.

    Your logfile is at:
    C:\Users\USER_NAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live
    Mail\WindowLiveMail.log
    (Vista)
    C:\Documents and Settings\USER_NAME\Local Settings\Application
    Data\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail\WindowLiveMail.log (xp)

    Thanks,
    -geoff
