Add a vCard to your contacts in Outlook 2016 for Mac

A vCard is a virtual business card that you can share with other people as you would a paper business card. If you receive a vCard attached to an email message, you can save the vCard as a contact.

  1. Open the message that contains the vCard attachment. vCards always have the .vcf file name extension.

  2. Double-click the attachment.

    The vCard opens in a Contacts window.

  3. On the Contact tab, click Save & Close.

Tip: If the vCard is saved on your computer (for example, on your Desktop) instead of attached to a message, you can also double-click it to open it. If the vCard does not open in Outlook, Ctrl+click or right-click the file, point to Open With, and then click Microsoft Outlook.
