How many times to follow up after no response to an email?

I usually just send one email one week after I get no response. Should I send another after 1-2 weeks if no reply or just leave it at one email to follow up?

If you send an e-mail, and get no response, and then send another e-mail, and get no response, they are probably not interested

Fair enough. If I send an email and the other person replies saying they want to talk and potential times, and then I follow up on that request by providing some times but then they never confirm/reply (most likely due to being busy). Should I send them a friendly reminder email or an email saying I would still be interested in speaking if they have time? If so, how long should I give before sending that email?
