Contacts in Outlook 2013
Outlook 2013 has a new feature of integrating social networking accounts, a new People view presents most of a contact's information in an easily consumed view.
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.
Sharing Contact Groups can be a great timesaver when multiple people need to continuously e-mail the same groups of individuals (for more details see Sharing Contact Groups). You can easily import a Contact Group that was e-mailed to you as an attachment.
You can easily share your Contact Groups by attaching them to e-mail. There are several ways of attaching Contact Groups.
The address book is usually created when you create a Personal Folders profile, but only one address book can be defined for the profile. Fortunately you can easily create additional address books out of the profile for your own needs.
If you regularly send e-mails to the group of people, you can create a Contact Group and send them an e-mail with just a few clicks.
This option controls which address book you see when you open the Address Book (via clicking Ctrl+Shift+B) and when you click the To, Cc, or Bcc buttons when composing e-mails.
If you want to construct a more complicated distribution list, with some recipients on the To field, some recipients on the CC field, and yet more recipients on the BCC field, you have to use a message template where you explicitly assign recipients to each field.
In some situation you may want to send your vCard in every message. This lets recipients enter the information in their address book quickly and without errors.
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).
