How do comment @replies work?

I looked through the FAQ page but there was no answer there. Say I post an answer to a question. Then someone else wrote a comment to my post. How do I know a comment is posted without clicking through all my responses?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

May I point you towards the Global Inbox?

Essentially, when an a comment is left to one of your answers the StackExchange link (upper left, above the Stack Overflow icon) will have a number, with a distinctive red background-colour appended to it to show the number of comments/responses.

Global Inbox has a distinct lack of envelope. – corsiKa Mar 20 '12 at 19:06

I assume that was a "waah, who moved my cheese?" comment. – Cody Gray Mar 20 '12 at 19:21
