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 Contacts folder and select the contact item you want to send:

Contacts in Outlook 2003

    2.    Choose Action -> Forward As vCard. Outlook inserts the vCard into the message:

Forward as vCard in Outlook 2003

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

NOTE: If you know that the recipient uses Outlook, you can right-click the contact and choose Forward or select the contact and choose Action -> Forward to send the contact data as an Outlook contact item. Outlook users can also use vCard attachments.
