I am considering going through a few e-mails of mine, to get rid of the clutter and more than likely save some important e-mails. Is there any website or software out there that specifically helps with such a task?

Thanks

I'm not sure what more you could do other than the built in features most email clients have now. What is your criteria for sorting them?

I use the sort feature built in on the column (from/subject/date etc), you can click these to sort the emails for example by who sent it. Sorting by from and subject are usually the most helpful. For example if you have bunch of automated junk like topic reply notification you could sort by subject, select them all at once and delete them.

Under options there is a list for addtional table headings you might want like if it has an attachment.

You could automate these tasks by using the filters and for example send it to a specific folder.

Filters are great and easy to use. There are very sophisticated ones in Outlook and Mac Mail, but online systems, like GMail and Yahoo have them too. YouTube has a lot of quick tutorials that'll walk you through how to set them up. Just search "email filter tutorial".

I only have an experience with gmail, and it is really easy to get your email in order. You label them and file in the folders. Then you can search by email address, by sender name, by topic, label, word.
You will see the list of your labels in a menu, then just click on the right label and get the right email.
