What I am trying to do is:

currentUser = EPiServerProfile.Current;
                    //currentUser.Email = email;
                    currentUser = emailUser;
                //EPiServerProfile user = EPiServerProfile.Current;
                currentUser.SubscriptionInfo.Interval = Int32.Parse(Interval.SelectedItem.Value);
                //user.Email = Email.Text;
                currentUser.SubscriptionInfo.SubscribeTo(CurrentPage.PageLink, CurrentPage.LanguageBranch);

currentUser = EPiServerProfile.Current;
currentUser.Email = email;             

currentUser.SubscriptionInfo.Interval = Int32.Parse(Interval.SelectedItem.Value);                             currentUser.SubscriptionInfo.SubscribeTo(CurrentPage.PageLink, CurrentPage.LanguageBranch);

This property cannot be set for anonymous users --> The current user is anonymous and thus does not have a user to set subscription info for.

Solution was to allow anonymous users i web.config

Interesting, didn't know that worked. Care to explain more in detail what you did?

*Edit* Here's a link explaining what to do. Nice to know it's possible :)
