How do I track emails ONLY using tokens in CRM 4.0?
The pattern matching or "intelligent" matching of email content is
misapplying inbound emails to non-related cases. I want to turn this feature
OFF ASAP and return to ONLY tracking through tokens in the subject line. I
can turn OFF tokens but not the smart matching. A configuration option would
have been nice.
I think you turn on the tokens, and then your users have to use the option
to only track "E-mail messages in response to CRM e-mail" - that's how you
prevent CRM from using 'smart' matching.

...CRM 3.0 and CRM 4.0
We were implementing MSCRM for a very protential CRM customer (Education).
Even they haven't signed the contract but we already started developing on
the CRM 3.0, 3 weeks ago.
A lot of customisation + .NET developing required on the version 3 but now
we knew that we're reinventing the wheels as some of them will be already
built in the V4 which one will be realease very soon (Q1-2008?)
If we place order to MS now, we will receive the V4 earlier than Q1-2008,
but it is V4, not V3
So now we decided moving the developing on V4 directly because no guarantee

I have a client that has MapPoint 2004. They would like to have the ability

their existing and future facilities for a spcific service area on one map.
Does anyone know of a solution for accomplishing this?

You cannot reset the database. You could restore the database if you took a
backup before you started adding data. You can also go into the system and
start deleting records. Can I ask why you need to do this? Have you been
experimenting with CRM and now want to go to a live server?

Consider a situation where a field has been changed.

After CRM installation and valid internet connection via LAN, I could

When you fill in the registration details, if you specify the implementation
was done by a partner company, make sure you fill in data in all fields for
the partner company, otherwise the registration process can fail

We had to delete the OU from the Active Directy, and now

to change the GUIDs in the Active Directory - but we
tried a number of different things.
