Sending a Business Card in every new message

In some situation you want to send your vCard in every e-mail. This lets recipients enter the information in their address book quickly and without errors.

To attach vCard in every e-mail that you want, follow next steps:

    1.    Select the contact that you want to send.

    2.    In the Contact window, click the File button and select Save As... to display the Save As dialog box:

Save As Outlook 2016
  • Use the dialog box tools to navigate to the location where you want to save the vCard file.
  • The default name for the file is the contact name. You can edit this if desired.
  • In the Save as Type list, select vCard Files.

    3.    Click Save.

    4.    Create an email message and attach the vCard file that you just saved.

Note: To attach this file to every new message you can use the shortcut (for more details see Using Shortcuts to create new Outlook items):
