At work we use Outlook 2007, is there a way to copy each incoming (and previous) emails to a folder in my personal gmail account?

Review your work policy regarding storage and disclosure of employer-related digital information and make sure that this type of usage is ok. You should treat your "personal" Gmail account as a host that is accessible by third parties.

I believe you can do it by setting up a Rule (in the ribbon) on the work account. Have it apply to all messages received by not ticking any criteria in the first box, then in the second page of options, use "move a copy to the specified folder" or "forward it to people or a public group [as an attachment if desired]". When the rule is applied, you have the choice of retroactively applying it to all existing messages. Hope that you're not blacklisted for spamming if you're forwarding 5000 e-mails. :p

Use a Gmail tag to sort messages forwarded from that account if you go with the forwarding option - easiest is probably sorting by the Sender/From field.
