Is there a way I can annotate or comment on an email in Gmail, saving the annotation with the email?

    You can if you use ActiveInbox from which is a free browser extension.

    It also provides you with a lot of other features like scheduling, deadlines, etc. In fact, you can get LastPass Premium, Connectify, ibVPN and AeroFS free with a year's subscription of ActiveInbox Plus here:

    you have options : save, forward, reply.
    add text to body or subject and
    use these options:

    if the comments are for your personal purpose to search it later,
    add your annotations to the mail body/subject and forward to any of your mail address.
    or save it in drafts, apply or move in label.

    if you want to show "annotation" to others,
    forward the mail, and add your "comments" in the body/subject field mail and forward it to anyone you want.
