    Let's e-mail her five pics.

    Is the sentence Let's e-mail her (five pics/this file etc.) correct? = Let's send her (five photos/this file etc.) by e-mail.

    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Yes. Informally, that's fine.

    Odessa, the proper question tag there is "isn't it".
