Publishing of workflow with a email step in CRM 4.0 rollup 6 fails

Running CRM 4.0, with service pack 6 installed. I was able to publish workflows, but the moment I placed a email step on the workflow it did not want to publish, with the above error message.

“An error occurred when the workflow was being created. Try to save the workflow again.”

In there they pointed to add the following lines to the web.config

<authorizedType Assembly=”mscorlib, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089″ Namespace=”System.Globalization” TypeName=”CultureInfo” Authorized=”True”/>

you need to manually open the Microsoft CRM Web site web.config file in an editor like Notepad and add the following section to it in order to continue being able to publish workflows:

In the section <authorizedTypes>

…multiple lines here

<authorizedType Assembly=”mscorlib, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089″ Namespace=”System.Globalization” TypeName=”CultureInfo” Authorized=”True”/>

</authorizedTypes>

That fixed my problem, and I am now happily publishing workflow rules.
