Outlook 2010 making notations on an incoming email

My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and I use Outlook 2010.  Whenever I receive an email, sometimes I respond immediately while some I may sit on it for a few days.  
Is there any way I can make a notation on this incoming email in my Inbox, something like "replied on Jan 2-2013".
I am sure many Experts would have different techniques and hope they would share how they handle this.  
The idea is to move them out of the Inbox after it has been replied.  
I only move them out if it is going to be an ongoing to and fro dialogue, when I create a new folder and then move them the incoming and reply to that folder.  So my Inbox get slimmer.
But those that do not get to be moved to a folder, sits in the Inbox, I would like to add a notation, my notes on the email.  Is this is possible?
Thank u

Yes, you can add a reminder to the email and flag it with a follow up date.  It will give you a prompt as a reminder to follow up on the email.

If you highlight the email and look in the ribbon toolbar at the top of Outlook 2010 you will see an option that says Follow Up.  If you select this option you will see the option add reminder.
