Are you then amending the NS or just MX records in Gandi to point to FastMail?

If so, and because you mention aliases that have previously been created in Gandi, I would suggest that you record your current settings in Gandi.

I have done this a few times, and what I have done is take screen caps of all the settings (aliases, etc) in Gandi, then I have them to refer to when setting them up again in FastMail.

As for the e-mails currently with Gandi, if you are keeping your domain registered with them you can keep the e-mail accounts and the e-mails stored there, unless you really do want/need to transfer them over to your FastMail account.
Thanks for your answer Fred. I am thinking to move my domain to Fastmail and I also have 5 email accounts with Gandi (free with that domain) that I'm using.

About your last words: after upgrading my account to use my domain with Fastmail, if the records now are pointing to Fastmail, is it possible to login as always with Gandi email too?. I suppose that it's not possible because now all points to Fastmail and so I can't check those messages stored there and the emails. Maybe I am wrong.
