Connect to CRM with Rollup 4 installed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    is it possible to use an outlook client WITHOUT rollup 4 installed to connect to a CRM server WITH rollup 4 installed?
    Does it works fine-return errors-works bad?

    Thanks to all!

  • Hi Marco,

       The recommendation is that you apply the update for the server + client + email router. (I guess you know this much already).
    Having said that  I have been able to run the client with rollup 3 and with rollup 4 applied on the server without any issues. Of course there is no guarantee this will work for you aswell.

    Recommendation:

    - Apply the rollup on the server in out of office hours or weekend and test a client. Remember you can uninstall the update. (Be sure to backup your database).
    - You can apply the client update via group policy. This is save you from installing it individually on each users machine.
    - Be sure to apply the update for the email router too.
