Getting CRM 4.0 Queues to recieve mail

We have a few queues that recently stopped receiving emails in CRM. Any emails sent to sales@company.com should be pulled into a CRM queue. However, it stopped receiving emails about 2 months ago. The "good" thing is that another queue also stopped receiving emails at around the same time.

The only thing I can think of is that something I did to get outgoing email in CRM to work, somehow stopped incoming mail from being sent to the queues.

I have tried several different things in Email Router configuration, and none of them are working. I'm not sure where to go from here, i'm completely stumped!

Check the following:

- for each queue, what is the incoming profile set to? If it is forward mailbox, then make sure that the forwarding rules are still deployed.

- In the e-mail router configuration manager, make sure that the forward mailbox is still configured on the last tab.

- make sure you publish changes in the e-mail router configuration manager.

- check the event log on the server that has the e-mail router installed. It is possible (though perhaps not likely) there is an e-mail in the inbox for the queue that is upsetting the e-mail router. If so, then log in to the queue mailbox and delete that particular e-mail.

All of the queues are under the Users/Queues list.  Should they actually be Forward Mailboxes?

They all use the same incoming profile. Here's a picture of this:  Email Router Incoming Profile
I've also tried "User Specified" and then typed in credentials in CRM in the Queue's contact record in the email router section.

From your picture, for the URL that you specified you need to change the protocol to WebDav or change the URL to http://servername/EWS/Exchange.asmx (replace servername with your server).

All users and queues can use the same incoming profile - that isn't a problem.

You can use a forward mailbox with queues if you wish. I recommend that all users and queues are configured to use a Forward Mailbox to simplify management.

What happens when you run Test Configuration in the E-mail Configuration manager.

I changed it to http://servername/EWS/Exchange.asmx and testing it just hung.

I then changed it to http://internalIPAddress/EWS/Exchange.asmx and it said this during testing:
"Incoming Status: Failure - The remote Microsoft Exchange e-mail server returned the error "(404) Not Found". This user or queue does not have a mailbox. Create a mailbox and try again. The request failed with HTTP status 404: Not Found. "

For every mailbox it said this. But that's definately not true, since it was previously working, and i know these mailboxes exist.

Hmm. I'm running out of ideas.  Are you using Exchange 2007 or 2010?

One thing i noticed, when I put http://server/EWS/Exchange.asmx it takes forever to respond and doesn't succeed. Then, I tried HTTPS and specified the SSL port (443) in the advanced tab. When i do this, it says something about the SSL cert being bad. Well, at least it's responding right? I know that our SSL cert is bad. This is a costly hypothesis, like $500, so I don't want to suggest anything that is wrong that costs that much. So, do you think getting a good SSL cert then switching to HTTPS is the key?

Most likely that is the answer. The E-mail Router requires certificates to be issued by a trusted authority.

However, you can buy certificates for much less than $500. Try godaddy.com or startcom.com.

It's going to take awhile to do that, so I'm going to accept your solution now in case I forget later. I'll post back here if it doesn't work. Thanks for the help.
