Most of the giant email provider companies like Gmail, Yahoo, etc. offer a facility to create folders. Folders let you manage your email account and keep your emails separate from each other. You receive a number of emails every day out of which some are not that important. So you can simply transfer the important ones into a separate folder and check the folder whenever you need the emails.
