The Email Router Configuration Manager can test access for Microsoft Dynamics CRM users, queues, and forward mailboxes. By using the test-access feature, you can troubleshoot issues that can prevent the Email Router from functioning correctly.

If there’s a problem with your outgoing email configuration, you may receive the following error message when you click Test Access on the Email Router Configuration Manager:

"Outgoing status: Failure - An error occurred while checking the connection to e-mail server EXSERVERNAME. The requested address is not valid in its context."

Troubleshoot test access

  1. To verify that connectivity is functioning between the computer that is running the Email Router and the Microsoft Exchange Server, start the Telnet tool and type the following command:


  2. Make sure that there are no antivirus services or firewall services running on the server that is running Exchange Server that prevent connection through port 25.

In addition, when you send an email message by using the Microsoft Dynamics CRM web application, you may receive an error message that resembles one of the following:

  • This message has not yet been submitted for delivery. 1 attempts have been made so far.

  • The message delivery failed. It must be resubmitted for any further processing.
