CRM updates?

I just installed MS CRM 3.0, the demo version that was released a few months 
ago. I figured that surely there would be be updates, bug fixes, etc., but a 
visit to Microsoft Update did not find any. Questions:

Have there been any updates?
Is MS Update the place to find them?
If not, where?

MS Update will not update CRM.  Since it's a business app, hotfixes are not 
automatically applied since many are only distributed when customers 
experience specific issues that require the hotfix.  There is also a 
potential of some hotfixes requiring isntall on the client machines as well, 
so they can't just blanketly be installed.

If you are experiencing specific problems you need to contact support who 
will make the determination on appropriate hotfixes.

Update the Global Address List (cached, not cached) in outlook
Hi, Once I made an userright error on one of the Exchange server (2003) Global Address List. Some users could see All Address Lists. I corrected the error, but... The users with "cached" turned on in outlook can still see the for bitten data. The users who do not use "cache" are only able to see the right data. The question is, how do I force an update of the cached users? If I delete the *.oab files from the clients the problems are solved on the particular computer.

Outlook CRM Client
We've recently installed CRM Dynamics and it works fine. We also installed the Outlook client on several laptops which has worked fine for most of us except myself who has recently experienced a Synchronisation failure and subsequently the Outlook client is showing Disabled.

How to control your Office 2011 update installation.
Dear friends: Today, I have in my Mac the following components of Office 2008 installed: Word, Excel, Powerpoint and Entourage. I want to upgrade this installation to Office 2011 but, in order to save disk space, avoiding the duplicate products. I want to have only Word (2011), Excel (2011), Powerpoint (2011), Outlook (2011) and Entourage (2008), of course without loosing my email or office data. Is this possible, or I will end with *all* the component products duplicated? When I updated my original Office 2004 installation to Office 2008 some years ago, I didn't get any product duplic...

CRM not idiot friendly.
Hi. We purchased CRM after a friendly display from Microsoft and were of the understanding that we could customise our reports however it now looks like we cannot do this. We are not programmers and are simply business owners who want things to work. Most of the reports are useless to us at this stage. Does anyone know how we can customise or write new reports without having to do 3 years of Unitech? -- Gav I agree : Most reports are useless. I suggest you to hire a consultant or a company to create your reports. It's not so easy like that some body can teach you. Usually a con...

Can MS CRM be made to do anything?
I'm playing with MS CRM. I can create "articles" and "folders", but they are never displayed in the UI.

How Much Disk Space Needed for CRM 3.0 Connector?
-Greetings! I am about to install CRM 3.0 on a brand new server. We have a Great Plains 9.0 server installed already and I would like to run the integration/connector applications from that server. My concern is that I do not have enough disk space on the main system (OS) partition to facilitate this. I saw it written somewhere that i need a 20Gb hard drive (the wording seems odd), but I'm having trouble understanding why I would need that much room for this integration component. Does part of that figure include the size of a SQL DB itself? If so, how much? How much disk space ...
