Viewed this, but not quite relevant.

I have email forwarders on my server, and an actual address. I moved the actual address to a third-party SMTP service provider. I changed DNS/MX to point to this provider, so the address works fine but now my forwarders fail.

Please advise on how to correct DNS so the forwarders still function. (They forward to Gmail addresses.)

It's not possible, forwarers can only forward emails that come to your server, and because MX record(s) point elsewhere mails never come to your server.
