In this post we are going to discuss first option. We need a SSL certificate to bind with crm website. As we are using our demo VPC, so we have created a wild card certificate. Follow below steps to bind SSL certificate and configure https binding to crm website.

  1. Create a SSL certificate. (Please refer our earlier post to create wild card certificate.)
  2. Run IIS Manager.
  3. Select Microsoft Dynamics CRM website.
  4. Click on Bindings… under Action.
  5. Click on Add under Site Binding dialog.
  6. Select https from Type dropdown.
  7. Select your SSL certification under SSL certificate dropdown and keep other setting as default.
  8. Click Ok and Close.
  9. Navigate to Microsoft Dynamics CRM Deployment Manager.
  10. Select Microsoft Dynamics CRM and select Properties under Actions.
  11. Select Web Address table and click on HTTPS binding type.
  12. Change port with the port that we used in https binding under Step 7 (443 in our case) in all services.
  13. Click Ok to close and do IISRESET

Now navigate to mailbox record in crm, you should get "Allow to use Credentials for Email Processing" enabled.
