How Quickly Should You Respond to Emails From Friends?

Reader Angelica recently posed the following question in the GeekSugar Community:

I spent a few days largely off the grid a few weeks ago when I was on vacation. I had my iPhone and computer, but didn't maintain my usual social networking mania. My tweets were sparse, I didn't update Facebook and I didn't email friends back at my usual lightening speed. The reason? I was really busy. Still, I received three emails from friends wondering if I was OK (and in one case, if I was mad at her). Clearly my always available and online status has trained others to think I will be just that — always available — but it's not always possible. How fast do you think friends should expect to hear back from you via email?
