Creating CRM Users 02-22-05

Thanks for your response.  No there are no strange characters, the two
names are John Phillips and Steve McDonagh.

These two users have been added to our pilot CRM system, which is
independent of this live version, with out any problems.

Yep created them using the web interface without any problems.  Still
doesn't solve the deployment manager problem though.

Thanks for your continued help.

i want to delete 1 user in the CRM deployment manager, could you tell me how 
can i do that?

I don't know how you can do it in the deployment manager, but you can
administer the system better (in my opinion) from the web interface. 
Look in settings, business units settings, users and you can add or
remove licences and users at will.

Sorry can't be of more help

updating user info #2
I'm wondering how I can go about updating users info in our network. We currently have roughly 1k user accounts that only display 1st and last name along with their display name, alias, city, state.

Our users move from department to department, often so their info is wrong 90% of the time. Their info in Outlook will say the person is in city (a) meanwhile you come to find out...

Sending emails through CRM
currently using two CRM deployments (3.0).

Problem with Update Command User Interface Handler
I am trying to use both the UPDATE_COMMAND_UI and ON_COMMAND to control an item in a pop-up menu. I create these through the class wizard (VC++ 6.0). I'm creating the messages for the view class. What's happening is weird. If I use just ON_COMMAND, then it works fine. If I create UPDATE_COMMAND_UI, then I THOUGHT that the OnUpdate command would be called before the menu pops up, then my intention is to set the particular item to enabled or disabled conditionally. What happens is that the OnUpdate function is called when I click on the particular item in the menu; and the ON_CO...
