How to Migrate Mail Data & Structure (Folders & Messages)

Maybe it is just my perception but I feel Google is like the stalking ex-lover in the song ”Every Breath You Take” by The Police. I have been dreading changing email addresses for a couple of reasons 1) notifying everyone (persons & businesses) & 2) moving mail to the new account. To simplify things my plan is to keep the same username for my account as I have for Gmail account (in other words the email address would be the same except that it would end with The last time I did this I used Mozilla Thunderbird but it appears to have the same problems it had when I migrated from Yahoo about 10 years ago. Does anyone know of a way to do this in Outlook? I have seen directions for the web version of Outlook but the directions do not match what I see on the screen. If it helps I purchased a copy of Office 2016 with Outlook but I have not found a way to do with it what I did with Thunderbird.
