My company is switching email servers to gmail. I know I will have to switch the MX code on the company domain, but will I need to do any work to the end-users devices (outlook, phones, etc.)? 


Will this have any effect on the previous emails employees have received. Do I have to worry about losing them?

You will have to change the email server information in Outlook, on your phone, and anywhere else.

I don't know anything about Outlook but there should be a way for you to edit those settings. Delete the old server info, type in the new.

If all you do is change the information the emails will not be lost.
