Resetting MS CRM Sales for Outlook 1.2 Contacts synchronization
We have a few clients that have either deleted the synchronized contacts in
the local contact folder or aren't getting the ones they are supposed to
since the 1.2 update. Two questions on this:
Where is the information on contacts that are deleted locally kept to
prevent the re-sync, specifically ?
How do we reset this ?
We have tried reinstalling per the KB without success. Any help would be
appreciated. Seems strange this isn't documented somewhere.

In CRM 4.0 I cannot find a way to hide or delete system views

around this by sharing with a "dummy" user, which would hide it from
the rest of the users. I cannot find such a work-around in 4.0; has

can the email still be tracked if ms exchange is not being used and an smtp
server is used instead? both for outgoing and incoming . . .
The email can be tracked manually by having the user use the "Track in CRM"
button. With CRM 3.0, the Exchange CRM router is an optional component that
gives you the ability to automatically promote email threads to CRM.
In addition, CRM 4.0 will not require Exchange to automatically track email.

If you are using exchange mailbox then the only thing you need to move over
is your boss's .pst and .pab files. If he don't have those two files then
you don't need to do anything. All the information is stored on the server.
Just reconfigure the new Outlook with his exchange mail information.

Connectwise is so different from how we work, and Autotask is similar to
that. We have been so happy with our database becuase of the ability to
manipulate it so freely and quickly if we need to. About 5 years ago, after
we built the database we decided to switch from an hour...Get external data locks csv file

A quick timeline before explaining my issue:
- We installed CRM 3.0 a couple of years back. We imported old data
from ACT! and used a custom drop down field with the value "Migrated
from ACT!" to distinguish.
- Users have put in a lot of work cleaning up those records, merging
when necessary, assigning to right owners...
- At some point we installed rollup 1 for 3.0 successfully.
- Last year, mid-December, we upgraded to CRM 4.0 (I believe)
- A month later, mid-January, we installed rollup 1 for CRM 4.0.

I have recently been introduced to Microsoft Outlook. My e-mail address is

In general, comcast will have to support POP3 E-Mail (for E-Mail that
you receive) and SMTP E-Mail (for E-Mail that you send) (there are some
other formats supported as well, but POP3 and SMTP are the most common).
Assuming that it does, you need to enter the proper parameters into
outlook (basically server names, account IDs and logon passwords). Once

we want to develop a survey application in ms crm 4.0 . IS there any way to

thanks in advance
If this is a "permanent survey" like a customer satisfaction survey sent
after each resolved case, then you can create a custom entity and link it to
the relevant entity (case in this example). Secondly, create a custom aspx
application which collects this survey information and uses the CRM web
services to create a record for that.
