TDD on DeliverIncomingEmailRequest

There is a scenario where developers would like to convert emails to the related entity let’s say incident.

To process the incoming emails, a plugin needs to be developed that listen to the DeliverIncomingEmail message. Imagine that developers need to setup a vpc which has a valid routable email address and internet connection etc.

Actually in the SDK, we can simulate this by triggering DeliverIncomingEmailRequest CRM service

Developers can use the below code

            DeliverIncomingEmailRequest req = new DeliverIncomingEmailRequest();
            req.From = "from@email.com";
            req.To = "ryan@sample.com";
            req.Subject = "subject" + DateTime.Now.ToLongDateString() + " - " + DateTime.Now.ToLongTimeString();
            req.MessageId = "messageId" + Guid.NewGuid().ToString();
            req.Body = "body" + Guid.NewGuid().ToString();
            req.Cc = "cc@email.com";
            req.Bcc = "bcc@email.com";
            req.ReceivedOn = new CrmDateTime("10/10/2000");
            req.SubmittedBy = "abc";
            req.Importance = "1";

            req.Attachments = new BusinessEntityCollection();
            req.Attachments.EntityName =
            DeliverIncomingEmailResponse res = (DeliverIncomingEmailResponse)crmService.Execute(req);

Pay attention that one of the recipient must be a valid CRM user with his/her valid email address. In this example, ryan@sample.com is a valid crm user.

This code can be run by using NUnit to make the testing easier.
