If replying via email you can also add comments on the second line. The comments will be stored with the approval request in Salesforce CRM.
Note: For salesforce.com to process your response the word APPROVE, APPROVED, YES, REJECT, REJECTED, or NO must be in the very first line of the reply email. Also, any comment must be in the second line.

If you use a custom email template for your approval process, make sure that it explains both response options: clicking the link and replying by email.
