The OWA URL will remain the same.


Changing the MX record only effects how other e-mail servers on the Internet

Subject: [exchangelist] MX Records for mail - OWA

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.
