Well, this one is a recurring question: is Microsoft CRM compatible with other email clients such as Thunderbird?
Well, the simple answer is “No sir”, but I’ve found myself thinking about creating a free plugin that will give the ability to convert emails in Thunderbird to CRM emails and to synchronize contacts (at least from the Thunderbird address book to CRM).
It is a very much anticipated development but I already have the skeleton, and thanks to Microsoft CRM 2011 REST feature, I think I might end-up getting things to work.
What do you think, would such a plugin be useful to you? Feel free to comment and give me advices
I’ve just found out this very nice post on multiple forms basics in Microsoft CRM 2011, so I wanted to share it with you all…

After a couple of days without posting anything, I thought about explaining a real case scenario where your client would like to deal with meeting minutes inside Microsoft CRM.
New update for Microsoft CRM 2011 beta is available through Windows Update since the 26th of October.
I haven’t found any information on this update so far, so I’m going to test it against my deployment to find any bug or error.
Finalement, il n’en fallait pas plus à Microsoft pour adapter sa plateforme CRM aux demandes des partenaires (dont moi ) : il est désormais possible d’attacher un ou plusieurs document(s) dans les modèles d’emails !
Une nouvelle fonctionnalité de Microsoft CRM 2011 est la possibilité d’utiliser SharePoint 2011 pour l’intégration des documents CRM.
