Attaching a Business Card to a message

Outlook 2016
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:

   2.   Select the contact item you want to send:

   3.   Do one of the following:

  • On the Home, in the Share group, select the Forward Contact list and then choose As a Business Card:
    Forward Business Card in Outlook 365
  • Right-click the contact and choose Forward Contact -> As a Business Card:
    Forward Business Card in popup menu Outlook 365

Outlook inserts the vCard into the message:

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