Working with Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011
Monday, September 27, 2010
Something disappointing though for the CRM community is as per Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 readme "Internet Explorer 9 Beta is not supported with Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011.
There is a good news though, that you have a workaround you'll find it here Pablo Peralta's Blog which I haven't tried it myself yet. You can if you will.
IE9 would need some work before it's final release which Microsoft continues to do.

1. List your attachments in a CSV file as shown in the figure below. Let it contain these columns
#Filename, The name of the attachment file.
#Document, Give each attachment a unique name and store it in the file system organized in one of the following ways.
- Store attachments in the folder which contains the CSV file where you listed your attachments.
- Store them in the sub-folder named Attachments. It must be a sub-folder of the folder where the attachments list CSV file is stored.
- Store them in a sub-folder named Documents. It must be a sub-folder of the folder where the attachements list CSV file is stored. (I've used this option as shown below)
#Title, The title of the Attachment in CRM.
#Here I show the attachment file that is being uploaded. Notice that I've given it a unique name and mentioned the same in the excel file above.
#You are ready to begin the Migration. Here map the CSV file that contains the annotations to the Note entity. If the CSV file contains attachments, check the "Includes Attachments" checkbox as shown below.
#If the CSV file contains notes you can ignore the checkbox. Here is a figure that shows how you can upload Notes.
You are done. The attachments are now accessible on CRM.

The length of the 'messageid' attribute of the 'email' entity exceeded the maximum allowed length of '100'
#9628 – An error occurred while delivering the e-mail message with subject "This is a second demo" in mailbox email@example.com for delivery to http://192.168.1.205:5555/crmdemo.System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: Server was unable to process request.

A validation error occurred. The length of the 'messageid' attribute of the 'email' entity exceeded the maximum allowed length of '100'.
Tweak the Message ID attributes Maximum Length from 100 - 200 or 250 and you are good to go.
- Settings > Customizations > Customize Entities > Email > Attributes
- Double click Message ID and change the Maximum Length
- Save and Close
By the way, I am using Google Mail (Gmail) POP3 service to configure my environment.
I received the below error
#61042 - An error occurred while processing the outgoing e-mail
message with subject "xyz" for SMTP: http://localhost:5555/organizationName for
delivery through smtp.gmail.com. System.Net.Mail.SmtpException: The operation
has timed out.
at System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient.Send(MailMessage message)
After trying things like re-configure E-mail Router, Gmail POP3 settings, E-mail Router service restart etc. something dawn'd on me.
I noticed that Gmail had provided with 2 port numbers, SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) and it's successor TLS (Transport Layer Security). I replaced the SSL port number with the TLS (ie 465 with 587) in the E-mail Router Outgoing Configuration Settings under the Advanced tab.
Result: The E-mail moved on and so did I. Happy e-mailing!!

In my custom web service I was summing up the values from the child records and updating the 'Amount' and 'Discount Percentage' fields of the related Contract Line record.
While I was testing, the system generated the platform trace which said -
Both 'amount' and 'percentage' cannot be set.
I am assuming, CRM wanted to convey that both 'Amount' and 'Discount Percentage' fields of Contract Line entity cannot be calculated and updated using the CRM Service Update method.
I really don't know why was the system designed this way? All I do know is that I have to look for another way out.
I would appreciate if someone can reason this behavior!!
