The related item for the synchronized Outlook item is not foundThis problem is related to the salesperson contact item that is linked to the global address list. The salesperson contact item is not allowed to link to the global address list. This problem can occur when you set the mail address for the contact in Outlook instead of in Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Under typical circumstances, by using the newest version of the .dll file, you can set the email address in Microsoft Dynamics NAV and then synchronize the email address to Outlook.
