Email reminder Outlook 2007

When I send an email, many times I wish I had something to jog my memory to followup with that person if they didn't respond back.  I use Outlook 2007 on a network with SBS server 2008 and Exchange.  What are some options for setting an automatic memory jogger when I send that email?  Ideally it would send me an email back, like a day later where it is asking me if that person responded back.  I don't like the "reminders" window in Outlook, as there isn't much displaying there and I tend to not pay attention to it. I like the Outlook main window where I have everything in view and my emails displaying in the All Mail Items list with subject line displayed and with the reading pane to the right.  That layout seems to work best for my mind.

You could click the flag to highlight the sent item then a few times a day check your sent for anything marked with a red flag.

You could also set a rule to move a copy of the email to a specific folder based on what's in the subject if there is something common you have amongst the emails you want reminding about.  You can also mark this item with a followup flag for a set number of days.

Tools > Rules & Alerts > New Rule > Start From a Blank Rule > Check Messages after Sending

Choose the condition for the emails you want checking
Flag Action for Followup in a number of days

Continue to configure the rule and I think that might be your best option for using outlook out-of-the-box options.
