Create Email using CRM SDK and C#

Follow the below steps to create a simple Email record in Console application,

Step 1: Open Visual Studio and Create Console Application Project.

Step 2: First we have to establish connection to CRM. Please follow my earlier post Connect to CRM Online or On-premise using C# SDK.

Step 3: Generate Early bound class using Crmsvcutil.exe. Please follow my earlier post Generate Early bound Class using CrmSvcUtil.Exe in CRM.

Step 4: Add EarlyBound.cs to the project.

Step 5: Include the namespace using EarlyBound.cs.

Step 6: Below method will create Email record,

Create Email - Parameter Description

public static void SendEmail(Guid From, Guid To, string ToEntitySchemaName, string Subject, string Description)
{
try
{
// Create 'From' activity party for the email

ActivityParty fromParty = new ActivityParty
{
PartyId = new EntityReference(SystemUser.EntityLogicalName, From)
};

// Create 'To' activity party for the email

ActivityParty toParty = new ActivityParty
{
PartyId = new EntityReference(ToEntitySchemaName, To)
};

// Create an e-mail message

Email email = new Email
{
To = new ActivityParty[] { toParty },
From = new ActivityParty[] { fromParty },
Subject = Subject,
Description = Description,
DirectionCode = true
};

Guid _emailId = _service.Create(email);

SendEmailRequest sendEmailreq = new SendEmailRequest
{
EmailId = _emailId,
TrackingToken = "",
IssueSend = true
};

SendEmailResponse sendEmailresp = (SendEmailResponse)_service.Execute(sendEmailreq);

if (sendEmailresp != null)
{
Console.WriteLine("Email record created successfully");
Console.ReadKey();
}
}
catch(Exception ex)
{
Console.Write("Error " + ex.Message);
Console.ReadKey();
