Updated: November 28, 2016

Applies To: Dynamics 365 (online), Dynamics 365 (on-premises), Dynamics CRM 2016, Dynamics CRM Online

In Microsoft Dynamics CRM Email Router, incoming and outgoing Email Server profiles are different and each user or queue is attached to both an incoming and an outgoing profile. However, in server-side synchronization, both the incoming and outgoing profiles are present in a single profile and a user is attached to a single Email Exchange Server profile. In this topic, you will learn how the incoming and outgoing Email Server profiles are merged to create a new profile in server-side synchronization.

For more information on how to migrate data and settings from Email Router to server-side synchronization, see Migrate settings from the Email Router to server-side synchronization.

The following table shows how the Email Server profiles are migrated:

When a new email server profile is created, all the user mailboxes using that server profile are added to this profile. Any profile with custom protocol present in Email Router will not be detected for migration and user will not see any custom protocol related messages on the UI. Timestamps of all the mailboxes will be updated whether their corresponding email server profile is migrated or not.

The following table shows field mapping when two Email Server Profiles are merged to create a new profile in server-side synchronization.
