    iPad will only let me send 5 pics at a time, would be nice to send more , especially this time of year. Even when I send 5 , the receiver is telling me they take a LONG time to open, and sometimes not at all. Noticed the email took a longer than usual time to be sent. Suggestions??

    The native photo app limits you to sending five at a time because such large files of data will clog your wifi or 3G connection, as well as the recipient's.

    When you send photos, you're sending (and the recipient is receiving) a lot of data. That's why it's slow. It helps to have a fast connection, but not everyone does, and even then some carriers have limits on data usage.

    Adding: Instead of emailing so many photos, you might want to use a photo / file sharing site like Flickr, Dropbox, etc.
