comment Will a change to the Web.Config file require that I restart IIS?
@spuder yes, it can. While the app pool is down there is no worker process to execute your app so users will get a 503 Service Unavailable until the app pool has started back up.

comment How do I use a domain account to connect to a MSSQL server for NPS accounting?
@red888 You have to use Windows authentication in order to use a domain account. If you want to use a different domain account than the one you're logged in as you need log out and log back in with that account or run SQL Server Management Studio as the other account (using the Run As function).

comment Dump user's Exchange mailbox to explorer while retaining folder structure
I wrote an Outlook plugin at one point to do just this type of export. I'll see if I can dig it up.

comment Dump user's Exchange mailbox to explorer while retaining folder structure
Ok. It sounded like he has to take items out of his folder structure and drop them into an existing (different) folder structure on the filesystem, picking and choosing what is important to save along the way. If it's just a blind dump then it certainly makes more sense to automate.

Don't take this as criticism, just trying to understand - what is it about dumping the mailbox to the filesystem that will make things easier? He can just drag and drop out of Outlook, and then the filesystem is not cluttered with the junk that doesn't get moved.

+1 automation is your friend. You can also benefit greatly from continous integration tools like TeamCity, CruiseControl and Octopus Deploy.
