Email Contacts from 2003 to 2007


Drew E.

At work we share contact information by dragging a contact from the contact
folder to an email and then sending the email. The recepient then drags the
contact from the emailto his/her contacts. I have tried to do this to my
home email and it doesn't seem to work.

I create an email in Outlook 2003 (XP) and drag a contact to it. I then
send the email to my home address.

When I receive the email at home, Outlook 2007 (Vista), it looks like that
contact is attached but when I open the email the attachment is another email
(envelope symbol). When I open this it is simply an email with the contacts
name as the subject line.

you need to set your home address to always get RTF. Or forward the contact
as a vCard. In 2007, its on Actions, Send full contact; It's on the Actions
menu in 2003 too.
