The only time I had an issue was a few years back - they said I had too many 60 day visas back to back, so had to get a 30 (just go there) and get a 60 after.
I had a similar issue in the days when I was just married and didn't have an JFRV/ARC ... to get a 60 days visa in HK I had to get an HIV test! ... never did it so they gave me a 30 day and marked my passport with some code.

You generally can't send someone more than a couple of full-size digital photos as an e-mail attachment; those files are too big, and they'll bounce back to you. (Instead, use iPhone or Picasa--photo-organizing programs that can automatically scale down photos in the process of e-mailing them.)
