    I wonder how to write a polite reminder to someone who has not answered yet to our email. I wrote this: I am sorry to find that I am still missing your reaction to our email. Is it o.k.?
    Also, if I'm forwarding the email that the person still did not replied to, can I write this: Will you please let us know the issues/matters/conditions (delivery, prices, payment...) stated in the below email?
    And finally: We hope to receive your reply soon.

    Thank you!

    "I am sorry to find that I am still missing your reaction to our email" is VERY formal-sounding, SDCP, and I can't say that I've ever heard this phrase used before ("reaction to our email). I might say:

    "We look forward to your response to our e-mail of XYZ date" OR "With respect to our e-mail of XYZ date, we note that we have not yet received your response".

    As far as forwarding the e-mail that hasn't yet been responded to, I might simply say:

    "Please advise with respect to the issues stated" (or some such).
