Does this mean that you might not get email for 48 hours - or will it come to
the old MX record until it propagates?

        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?

        Vicki

                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.
