Work E-mail Never Ceases to Disappoint

"Your schedule will be stay this way until the HP Department outage schedule goes into affect at which time you will follow that posted schedule."
There are three items of interest, the first of which is the apparent typo "... be stay ...". I will overlook this I suppose. Second is the obvious misuse of "affect". I do admit that I have to think about whether effect or affect are most appropriate in many cases, but a little thinking does a body good. Finally, I believe there should be a comma after the inappropriate "affect". Is that right?
