how to check an email is registered or not RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,


    Before submission a record to CRM I need to check whether a particular email is already registered or not under an account in crm4.0.  Using WCF I need to check this. I have a GUID and the email. Can anyone please tell me how to achieve this.


    thanks in advance.
