Changes to DNS records can take from 6 to 48 hours to propagate, depending
on existing TTL and configuration of other DNS servers on the Internet.

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.
