I'm testing Office 365 Small Business and I'm having problems with sharing the Team Site with external user. When I try to login, using the link in the invitation email sent by Office 365, I get the error message below. I looked in the forum I believe the solution was sent privately. What am I doing wrong?
This is Tim with Microsoft Office 365 SharePoint Support.
Is the email address, that you have shared your site with, associated with a Windows Live ID? Have you tried to share your site with a Hotmail account, share your site with that email address and see if you are able to access the site?
I will continue to monitor this thread and wait for your reply.

Hey Tim, how's it going? Look, I tried to different hotmai address and, at first, neither worked, them one of them started to work, go figure! So le me explain what I'm doing. I have a personal hotmail address, and used it as subject for the test. I granted access to this email address and recieved the invitation email as it was supposed to happened. However when I click on "Accept the Invitation" it takes me to the "Welcome to SharePoint Online" page. I then click on the "Windows Live Hotmait" image to login with my hotmail email address and its password, but I always get the error messagen that I attached to my post and it says I'm not a member of the site, but I know I am. Do you know why this is happening?
I am sorry for my delay in replying. I am not able to find a concrete reason as to why this issue is happening. I would suggest that you create a service request to have your issue looked into further. I have sent you the information that you will need to create the service request via a private message.
