Email task app?

Hi all, I have a 64gb iPad 2 running iOS 5.1 which I use for work. My mail is synchronised with the office server and I can access that on my Windows laptop or my iPad.

When I receive a new email that I need to either reply to (ie it's not just an information email) or perform an action in order for it to be considered complete, I can set it as a task in Windows, set a coloured reminder, flag a reminder to pop onto my screen etc - ie loads of ways to highlight to me that this needs to be actually actioned.

With the iPad I can't do anything with the email, I can mark it unread or go to reminders myself and type a 'manual' reminder referencing this email but that seems about it.

Is there any app that lets me either create a reminder/task straight to reminders from the email or, at the very least, do something to differentiate it from the rest of the emails in my inbox (even highlighting it in a colour would do)?

I'm resorting to creating a subfolder called "To do" and manually moving these there for the minute but a reminder / task, which I've had the ability to set on Windows Outlook since the 90's, seems impossible on the iPad.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer,
