Attaching a Business Card to a message

With Outlook, you can send a copy of a contact item in vCard format, a standard format for exchanging contact information. This allows the recipient to import the contact data into a contact management program, assuming that the recipient's program supports the vCard standard (as most do).

To share your contact information with others using a vCard, follow next steps:

    1.    In Outlook, open the People folder and select the contact item you want to send:

Contacts Outlook 2016

    2.    Do one of the following:

  • On the Home, in the Share group, select the Forward Contact list and then choose As a Business Card:
    Share Outlook 2016
  • Right-click the contact and choose Forward Contact -> As a Business Card:
    popup in Outlook 2016

Outlook inserts the vCard into the message:

Send as a Business Card Outlook 2016

    3.    Complete the message as you normally would and click Send.
