    Hey all,

    So Microsoft's release of Office 365 for iPad finally had me take the plunge to subscribe to Office 365 Home Premium ($99/year). However almost immediately I have found that there is a pretty big issue and Microsoft's technical representatives told me that it is actually widespread currently. I couldn't find a thread on it, so I thought I'd start one just in case anyone runs into it.

    The issue is if you try to share your Office 365 subscription (you are allowed to share with up to 4 other people in your household), you will be met with the following error:
    Microsoft says they're working on the issue and to just keep trying.

    I am kinda curious though if anyone else is unaffected by it and can send out invitations successfully right now?

    My subscription card arrived this afternoon and I was able to send an invite to my wife's email address, she clicked on the link and installed... No problems.
