I try to be responsive, but my email burden is pretty heavy. I often get back to random emails within at least 24 hours (sorry — the “at least” is not a typo). Perhaps even faster if your begin your email with something that will get my attention.
For example, you could try this opening:
Dear Beneficiary: My beloved friend, I am the former Prime Minister of Upper Outer Cosmogovia and selected your random email to receive $666 million dollars which I ruthlessly looted from my feckless fellow followers of fortune, the now impoverished people of the once-great Upper Outer Cosmogovia. I assure you that I will be completely trustworthy in this transaction….
You can reach me at jeff (my first name) at jefflindsay (my first and last names together) d0t(.) com.
