  • You don't need to have an Exchange server for CRM 2011 to work instead you can have POP3/SMTP servers. Please refer the following thread which answers your question.

  • Hi Marian,

    if you are planning Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Microsoft Office Outlook to process users incoming and outgoing e-mail messages for each user the you do not require the E-mail Router.

    E-mail Router will be only required for automatic queues incomming messages, worklfows automated emails and users that do not use Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Outlook. E-mail Router supports MS Exchange, POP3 e-mail systems for incoming messages and SMTP e-mail systems for outgoing messages.

    Email Router Rule Deployment component lets you deploy rules that are used to route e-mail messages to a forward mailbox from the mailbox of a user or queue. The Rule Deployment Wizard does not work with POP3/SMTP, Microsoft Exchange Online (Microsoft Hosted) e-mail servers and can only work with Microsoft Exchange Server.

    So if you are planning to use pop3/SMTP then you would be unable to use Email Router Rule Deployment functionality.
