MX redirecting

I in no means consider myself a expert in unix however my question is a little more complex. I am running a mac os 10 server and all web settings and email settings have been set up using the unix terminal. I am in the process or redirecting my mxrecords to a spam filtering company but i am having issues I changed the mx portions in the file however when i check them online it comes up saying = (what i want it to) but = (the old mx). Any help would be great thanks.

What are the TTL settings for your domain and the MX record?

TTL is 86400 in the Is there another file relating to the mx record?

I was setting it all up on Tuesday. I think i should have propogated by now right?

I was actually thinking of the A record for the MX host, but that should not apply in your case.

It should probably have propagated by now, but you have to remember there are many caching dns servers and clients out there and they don't always respect TTL, so I would be inclined to give it a little more time still.

The looks like this

$TTL 86400 SOA (
200xxxx739 ; serial
3h ; refresh
1h ; retry
1w ; expiry
1h ) ; minimum IN NS IN NS IN MX 10 IN MX 10 IN A IN A IN A * IN A IN A IN A IN A IN A IN A IN A 1x.x.x.x2 IN A 1x.x.x.x6 IN A

* this used to be which belongs to xo communications i changed it yesterday now that i think about it. Is it possible that is the problem
