I would ignore this. It is a filler sentence, people use it when it doesn't seem quite polite to just launch in to the real topic they're contacting you about. Also, they are not asking 'how are you?' as an actual question.

I would only respond if you need a filler sentence too or if there is a relevant health issue, which you would have possibly mentioned anyway whether they mentioned you being well or not.

That is all if it is a work related or formal email. If it is a friend then you could respond if you want.
