CRM 4.0 E-mail access type bulk setting tool
(Update: You can use CRM 4.0 Workflow to do it as well, it's up to you to choose which one you feel comfortable.)
Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 doesn't provide a tool for CRM User's email access type bulk setting. So I write this application to helping CRM Administrators for this purpose. It takes me 2 hours work so don't expect too much, however it does work. ;-)
1. Launch the application, type in the following information:
CRM Server(the CRM discover server address): e.g http://localhost:5555
Organisation(the Organisation's name, not Friendly name): e.g AdventureWorksCycle
SQL Server: e.g localhost
Database: e.g Adventure_Works_Cycle_MSCRM
CRM User: e.g CRMAdmin
CRM User's Password
2. Click the 'Load' button, it will list all enabled CRM users whom belonging to this organisation with their email settings.
3. Select users your want to modify, then select Incoming E-mail and Outgoing E-mail setting from the picklist. If you don't want to change both of those, then just select blank in the picklist.
4. Click the 'Update' button, it will update user settings you selected.
