Original KB number:   2899051


When you try to configure Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Office Outlook and you have a custom security role, you receive 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 receive 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. Which 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 that 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 that 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. Sign in to the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Web application as a user with the System Administrator role.
  2. From the navigation bar, select Microsoft Dynamics CRM and then select Settings.
  3. From the navigation bar, select Settings and then select Administration. If you're using Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 or later, select Security instead of Administration.
  4. Select Security Roles.
  5. Open the security role granted to the user that meets this issue.
  6. Select 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. Select 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. Select Save and Close.
  9. Configure Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Office Outlook again.

If you're still coming across issues, connect CRM for Outlook to your CRM Online organization, Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant is available to help diagnose the issue.
