When you attempt to configure Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Office Outlook and you have a custom security role, you encounter the following error:

"You do not have permission to access these records. Contact your Microsoft Dynamics CRM administrator."

If the security role is assigned through team membership instead of being associated directly to the user, you encounter the following error:

"You do not have enough privileges to access the Microsoft Dynamics CRM object or perform the requested operation."


Your security role in Microsoft Dynamics CRM is missing sufficient privileges for a specific entity. This could be the Mailbox entity or some other entity privilege required to successfully configure CRM for Outlook.


First identify which privilege is missing. You can expand the Details section in the error message which provides additional details including which privilege is missing. As shown in the More Information section below, the details may include a message such as "missing prvReadMailbox privilege" which would indicate the user needs Read access for the Mailbox entity. The example steps below are for the Mailbox entity but you can follow the same steps replacing the Mailbox entity with whichever privilege is mentioned in the details section of the error.

Update the security role to include user level Read access to the Mailbox entity. If the role is assigned through team membership, the security role will need business unit level or higher access. 

1. Log into the Microsoft Dynamics CRM web application as a user with the System Administrator role.

2. From the navigation bar click Microsoft Dynamics CRM and then click Settings.

3. From the navigation bar click Settings and then click Administration. If you are using Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 or later, click Security instead of Administration.

4. Click Security Roles.

5. Open the security role granted to the user that encounters this issue.

6. Click the Business Management tab. If the missing privilege is for a different entity, the privilege may be located on one of the other tabs.

7. Click the circle to grant User level Read access to the Mailbox entity. This privilege can be located by finding the Mailbox entity and the intersection with the Read privilege.

8. Click Save and Close.

9. Attempt to configure Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Office Outlook again.
