When you try to preview an e-mail activity in the Preview page in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0, the e-mail activity does not appear in the Preview page as expected. This problem occurs if the e-mail activity was not created in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0.
This problem occurs because the Preview page removes all HTML formats that are used in a Microsoft Office Outlook e-mail activity when you preview the Outlook e-mail activity. The <BR> tags and the <P> tags are converted to newline characters. However, the Preview page can display only three lines of text. If more than three newline characters are located at the beginning of the e-mail activity, the remaining part of the e-mail activity is truncated. In the Preview page, the truncated part is replaced by an ellipsis character.
This problem is fixed in the latest cumulative update rollup for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
