vCards are virtual business cards that you can share with others by importing or exporting them in Outlook. And the most common way to do that is in email. What do you do with a vCard? If you want to keep the contact information, add it to your Outlook contacts. If you get a card that has no VCF extension, this isn’t actually a vCard, it’s an Outlook contact, and you add it to your contacts the same way. Take a look at this course to learn more.
