How to Create a vCard in Outlook?
Don’t just keep your contacts’ Microsoft Outlook data saved in one place; share it with others conveniently through vCard (.vcf) format! Whether they are yours or someone else’s, you can now transfer contact information to those who need them quickly and easily. A vCard is an electronic business card, and it contains contact information such as the person’s name, phone number, email address, etc.
A vCard is a standard format that can be used to share contact information with other Outlook users. It’s a great way to keep your contacts organized, and it makes exchanging information much faster and easier than typing in all the details. It’s also a convenient way to export contacts for backup purposes. You can easily import .vcf contacts in to Outlook if necessary.
