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?

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
