Hi Gurus!

Let me describe my problem:

- Agent receives e-mail

- Indentifies business partner

- Creates activity, E-mail is connected with this object.

- Save

I can't open e-mail which is connected with created activity. I get error: Type= APPLICATION_ERROR, ID= GETHISTORIC_FAILED...

I've found note: 967925 but is for CRM 5.1. I'm using 5.0. Code is correct according to note.

Any ideas how to solve it?




Hello Piotr,

Ok, then that explains it! If you are using ICI, then the emails are stored on the external email server and not in SAP CRM. The Interaction Record in CRM contains a pointer to the email on the server. But if you delete or archive the emails from the server, then you will get the error message in the IC. This is completely dependent on how you configure your external email server. You can certainly have access from the IC, but you need to configure your email server to keep the emails for the desired length of time (i.e., until you archive the Interaction Records in IC).

The other option of couse is to use SAPConnect and the Agent Inbox with or without ERMS (or alternatively SAPConnect and ERMS Push) in which case the emails are stored in the SAP CRM system rather than on the external email server.

Warm regards,
