Add CF Administrator setting for CFEXCHANGE connection information.

In the CF Admin, give us the ability to specify a connection name, username and password.  Similar to a datasource name, this connection name would then be used in a CFEXCHANGE tag.

This would prevent another occurrence of having to specify user credentials within a CF page.

For example, in CF Admin, we could have the following fields:

Connection Name: ExchangeConn
Connection User: username
Connection Password: [password]

In CFEXCHANGE we could reuse the CONNECTION attribute:

<cfexchangeconnection connection="ExchangeConn" ...>

It would be even better if we could specify multiple connections.

Also, this should be extended into Application.cfc for application-specific settings similar to CF Mappings.

Should put this on the mail page and using mailsource idea for mailservers as well. (ie allowing multiple mailservers to be setup similar to datasources). this way you could select type = exchange|standard and put info in (similar to datasources)
