I struggle always with the fact when I send very important mails to some colleagues and sometimes I don't receive feedback so I have to chase them again... and again and again..

For not forgeting to chase them I would like to send my sent item to Mindmanager with a reminder or flag. I know I could do this manually (go to Outlook sent items and send the item to Mindmanager, then set a reminder in in MM but these are manual steps and take some time.

I would like that I can bush a button to:
1. Send mail in Outlook to receipients
2. Send this mail to Mindmanager and set a reminder in 7 days

Is this possible?

Well that is a nice and valuable way of chasing your colleagues.
My first thoughts about this...

You could create a specific query in MindManager that places the emails sent in your mindmap
-this works simliar to the send form outlook to mindmanager but the other way around and more options -
See advanced tab and via the outlook twistie you can organize all your queries.

You could use Topic Alerts to each of those emailtopics in your map.

However to get this done in OnePush Button you may want someone to create a Macro

or check if the MAP addin that Olympic provides offers a solution.
Maybe get the date in automatically via this function?

Looking forward to better ideas
