Sending Contact Information in vCard Format
The second format for sending contact information is vCard, a widely supported format for contact
information. Most email programs support this format and you may want to use it when you are
not sure that all the intended recipients use an email program that supports Outlook items. You
can send only individual contacts using a vCard, not distribution lists. To send a vCard:
Open the contact that you want to send.
In the Contact window, click the File button and select Save As from the File menu.
Outlook displays the Save As dialog box (see Figure 10.27).
