Students can reply to these email messages and the replies will go to your email account.  NOTE:  Unlike the Announcements Forum, when you send Quickmail, there is no student-accessible copy of the message posted in the course.  You, as the teacher, have access to your Quickmail "history," but the messages you send to students are only sent to their Appstate Gmail account and will only be visible there.
