MX records for old account

My website domain is with godaddy DNS is with cloudflare. I have mx records in cloudflare but I want to switch email services to g-suite. G-suite says to delete my mx records but what will happen to my current emails? if people try to send emails to my current email address will i still receive them after deleting the mx records? Thank you.

Nothing will happen. Just ensure that you keep the old email server running for a few days.

If the sending party knows the old record from their cache, emails will still be delivered to your old server.

If the sender does not know the old record, their servers will use the new MX and emails will be delivered to your Google box.

Thanks so much for the reply Mark. So I don’t have to do anything in godaddy correct? just make the changes in cloudflare according to google setup…
