Send contact information as a vCard in Outlook 2016 for Mac

A vCard is a virtual business card that you can exchange with others, just as you would exchange a paper business card. You can send contact information to someone else in vCard format, as long as the recipient uses an email program that supports vCards.

  1. At the bottom of the navigation pane, click People.

  2. Click the contact that you want to send as a vCard.

  3. On the Home tab, click Forward.

    Forward button

    A blank email message opens with the vCard attached.

Note: When Outlook creates a vCard for a contact entry that contains an image, the image is converted to JPEG format. This format can be read by different applications.
