   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 2013
  • 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):
