    How does a non-Outlook user view a Vcard?

    I don't use Outlook, but the supposedly widely-used Vcard VCF format seems impenetrable to me. No program on my computer opens it in an easily readable form. (Notepad displays all sorts of code along with the actual content).

    What application do I need to vew Vcards?

    As I recall, a vcard is just a plain text file. If you set Notepad or Wordpad or Word as the default reader, you should be able to see everything that's in it. You could also change the extension to .txt and it should open fine that way as well.

    But it won't be as pretty as in F-Viewer...

    Import .vcf files to email client

    You can also import .vcf or .vcard files into most email clients. I use Thunderbird and regularly input contact information using .vcf files that have been forwarded to me. The same goes for the contacts section of Gmail and Outlook.com.
