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...Problems with creating a newsletter
I chose the form "Newsletter - email".
I have created a 3 page newsletter. Now, I have NO IDEA how to send it out
as an email. I do not want to send it as an attachment. I cannot figure out
which "save as" format or what I need to do so that i can email this
newsletter. Is there a website that goes through how to do this?
Am I correct when I say that it has to be html in order for me to send it as
email? That is not one of the options.
Any help you give me would be greatly appreciated.
...Send to certain person using specific email account
I send an email to a certain receipient but don't want to use the
default email account.
Is it possible that when I send to them (plain text) , that it will
choose the other account I want to use to send it? Please advise how I
set this up.
I do not believe that this can be achieved automatically through standard
use of Outlook as you need to manually specify the name of the account to
send from if different than the default.
However, it would be possible using the Outlook object model. An Addin would
need to be developed that monitored each mail item prior to sending. If the

Has anyone else come across this issue in MSCRM3.0? - when you attempt to
resolve an email address to an existing contact in CRM (that does not
currently have an email address stored in their details) the contact resolves
OK but does not update the email address in the contacts details.
Is this by design, or have I found a bug?

I run Publisher 2003 on Windows XP. On June 13, I updated my system with

I am running Exchnage 2003. My CEO has a conatct in our organisation that
refer to his blackberry contact. I have set the forwarding to also keep a
copy in his mailbox.
What happens is that three copies of his forwarded email hit his blackberry
account! Only one hits his internal mailbox.
What I ahve determined is that the front end Exchange server seems to be
creating the additional copies. Is this how its meant to be (don think so cos
its such a nuisance and my CEO keeps complaining about it).

How do you get rid of the seconds in the time area. I have changed the
formatting in the time. I use the excel file as a data source. I include the
time in the mail merge. It always shows up with the seconds in the time. Very
it may be formatted as text, so won't respond to changing the time format.
if it is text, the TIMEVALUE formula will convert it to a decimal-based time
value which can then be formatted by using Excel's normal Number formatting--

Could someone explane to me what is the purpose of dwThreadId, the last
member of SetWindowsHookEx function?
I've expected that this is a thread id with which hooks is associated. That
means that hook is getting only messages produced by this particular thread.
But it looks like I'm getting system wide messages anyway. so could somone
make it clear for me?
In fact I need to process a mesages of only one window. I know the thread id
of that window. But! this thread is not in my process! And I don't want a
real system wide hook because it slows down the box.

1.) I am working on an assessment for upgrading our current RMS software from
1.2 to 1.3. My assessment will take in account the benefits, broken down by
store operations (Retail) and the benefits to IT. Also, list risks and
potential problems that might be experienced. We currently have 28 stores
with 3+ registers per location with another 22 new stores on the schedule
over the next 2 years. Are their other in this group of similiar size that
have done this upgrade to the new version?
2.) If we do not upgrade the software, can we still integrate the RMS to

One of my users is experiencing an issue when they save an email that is

of certain lines of the email. So for example "Size=2>" will appear in front
of someone's comments in the email or in front of their name. Does anyone
know why "Size=2>" is displaying in front of the lines of an email? Thanks.

When you send an e-mail message from an existing Microsoft Business Solutions
CRM contact, the e-mail address does not resolve to the contact record. When
you view the e-mail message in Microsoft CRM, you receive the following error
The sender's email address could not be resolved to a record in the system.
At least one recipient could not be resolved to a record in the system.

I have a user running Outlook 2002. She has been sending
out an email every week to a few other users to remind
them to go out on the network and check a certain file. I
advised her to have each person set up a recurring
calendar reminder so she no longer has to do this. She was
aware that she could do this but wanted to know if there
was a way she could create a recurring email from herself
to these other people instead. I am not aware of a way to
do this in Outlook so I thought I'd post this to see if
anyone else knew if this was possible.

First, never import.
Second, read the Help Files:
For best results make sure you check your PST file for errors just before
you migrate it and do NOT copy it into Outlook's default folder where you
may inadvertently overwrite another PST file and corrupt your profile.

This may seem like an insignicant issue, but when you have
hundreds of emails in your inbox, it is extremely
important to know which ones you have forwarded and which
ones you have replied to.
Unfortunately, my inbox icons do not change when I reply
to a message or forward a message. They also remain as
the "Read Message" icon.
I have searched the Knowledge Base, but I have been unable
to find an answer to this seemingly simple issue.
I am using Outlook 2000.
