If your email is longer than a couple of sentences, consider bolding the parts that you need a response on, or are critical for the recipient to understand.  Think about it: you want to make life as easy as possible for the reader and avoid any miscommunication. So rather reading over your email several times, they can right away know what they need to do. Of course, don’t go overboard and highlight every other sentence.
