Thank you so much John - I was hoping that your answer was the case - but 
I don't like to do something and find out the hard way that I have really
messed it up - 
what you said makes sense now - so I can move forward - and know that
everything will still work ok
 
Do you know how long it takes for an MX record to change? to propogate?

        The OWA URL will remain the same.

         

        Changing the MX record only effects how other e-mail servers on the
Internet locate the e-mail server that is designated to receive e-mail for
your domain.

        Does anyone know what the consequences are of changing the mail MX
record? We are looking to setup a SPAM filtering service that needs us to
redirect our MX record to their server - but I am confused about what that
will do to our OWA - because part of the current MX record is the URL for the
OWA?  Does this question make sense?  I want to make sure I know what is
coming when I change the MX record.
