Bulk Creating Windows Live IDs

Bring The Noise…

As I mentioned in a previous post, for the time being we will be running CRM Online on both the Windows Live (CTP) and the Office 365 (OSDP) administration, billing & provisioning platforms. If you are currently running CRM Online using Windows Live IDs for your users, the chances are that you have run into the issue where you can’t create more than 3 Windows Live IDs per day using the same IP address. This limit was originally put in place as a measure to prevent unscrupulous folks from creating large numbers of “spam” mailboxes, but has proved frustrating for legitimate CRM Online customers.

The good news is that there is now a simple way for you to “whitelist” your company’s IP address(es), which will allow you to bulk-create your Windows Live IDs. Simply complete the IP Whitelisting Form with as many details as possible, and your request will be automatically submitted to our Windows Live ID escalations team.

    Richard, thanks for a new link, I was desperately trying to find it, since old one is now not working.
