CRM 3.0 Implementation
I am interested in the experiences of others with implementing Microsoft CRM
3.0. I am a one man development team who has been tasked with implementing
CRM 3.0 with 30 users initially.
Our organization has been running on Lotus Notes for quite a while. We moved
to echange for e-mail over a year ago but still use Lotus for custom
databases. The first step will be pulling the data from Lotus Notes to CRM.
I have looked into the Microsoft CRM 3.0 Certification. There is a company
that offers a 10 day CRM 3.0 boot camp. Is this a good idea, and at what
point should I take it? We would lik...junk mail filter doesn't work with rules?
I receive mail from many pop3 accounts and mailing lists.
I use rules to organize the mail within my mailbox. One
problem I am having is that the junk mail filter does not
screen mail that is affected by the rules.
So for instance, I get an email from some alternate
account that I have. The mail comes in and gets picked up
by the rule and moved to the appropriate folder. When
this happens, the junk mail filter never checks the
message. Only mail left in the Inbox is screened.
Can someone help figure out how to make this work or does
anyone have a workaround? I'd hate to ...Problems migrating BCM data into CRM SB edition
I am having a problem migrating data from Business Contacts Manager (BCM)
into CRM 3.0 Small Business edition.
I have downloaded the BCM data migration pack and have followed the data
migration documentation to the letter.
I even cleaned up the BCM database prior to copying the files, checking them
for errors using the Manage Database option in the Business Tools menu.
It gets so far through the migration process and then bombs out.
Here is the final few entries from the log file:

Is it possible to link the policy to a specific OU or do I need to create

Yes, you can create a recipient policy that looks to just a specific OU. It
is done through LDAP queries. Here are some references to articles and
whitepapers that discuss how to work with recipient policies.

...Associating Multiple Existing Contacts to an Account, Until CRM 2.x
I have racked my pea-sized brain for endless days for a way to associate
multiple existing contacts (or accounts) to an account.
My client has accounts that have many contacts (or accounts) involved at
different stages of acquiring a new account.
The logical method would be to add a custom attribute with lookup
functionality into the existing CRM contact or account objects but this is
not possible with CRM 1.x.
The resulting UI would allow an end user to associate different contacts (or
accounts) to an account. Example:
