Vcard file in Signatures



A user e-mailed us requesting help with getting a Vcard attachment
attached to his outgoing e-mail.

I created his Vcard for him, and e-mailed it to him, but I am having
trouble explaining how to get it attached as a signature. I had him
open the Vcard file and re-save it, even save it to another location
(Desktop) so that it would show up in his contacts.

When we go to edit or create a signature, his card does not appear
under "Vcard options."

If we select "new Vcard from contact," and select his local contacts
from "Show names from the:" box, his name doesn't appear.

I got to work on my own system eventually after much screwing around,
but I'm trying to find a consise way to explain it to the user (who is
an anxious VP without a lot of time!) I'm not sure I'm able to
reproduce it in a step by step way. The trick seems to be getting the
vcard to appear as a contact, which doesn't happen when you simply open
and save a vcf file.

It seems odd to me that when creating signatures from a Vcard, that
outlook doesn't allow you to do this from a VCF file, and has you go
into your contacts. That's feedback for any MS people that may have
input. :)

He needs to open the vCard .vcf file and click Save to save it to his Contacts folder in Outlook. He should then be able to choose it from the vCard options while he's editing his signature.
