How to keep my email?

I'm soon to leave my current job. How can I keep my email that's in a Google Apps account through my employer (i.e., not a free Gmail account; the email address ends @employer.com, not @gmail.com)?

I have between 5000 and 7000 MB of email from my years of employment at my current job, which I'm leaving soon. I'd like to keep my email when I leave. My employer definitely won't help, but I have reason to believe they'll look the other way if I figure it out. I certainly would never do anything with it that could be harmful to them.
A lot of this email was in Entourage and then Mail before we all switched over to email via Google Apps earlier this year. So, I could still access a portion of my email through each of those applications if that makes anything easier. But if I can get it all from Google Apps email, that's the one place where it all resides now, so that might be better.
So, is this a matter of forwarding it all to a @gmail account somehow? Or do I need to buy a hard-drive or other kind of (affordable?) storage and get it on there? Please answer for the not-tech-savvy. Thank you!
