The latest update rollup for the Dynamics CRM 2011 client fixes some compatibility issues with Outlook 2013. However, we are finding some issues with users that have upgraded from Outlook 2010 to Outlook 2013. There was a similar issue when Office 2010 was released.

Back in 2007 I developed a solution to show Windows Explorer directories and folders inside an iframe on a CRM form. I blogged about it for the Microsoft CRM Team blog on MSDN.

In addition, Filebrowser incorporated some client-side script to create and display context-sensitive fol ...
We use queues in Microsoft CRM 4.0 to receive email for various sales and customer service functions. I recently set up a new queue and, when I tested it, I found that it was not receiving email at all.
