    Attached Contacts not readable in HTML mail (Outlook 2002, SP-2)

    Whenever one of my colleagues sends me a message with an attached contact card, all I get as the attachment is a blank message page, not the VCF. It seems she has her "compose" option set for HTML. Is this what causes the problem? See attached screenshot.

    Outlook can send contact records either in some proprietary format that doesn't always travel well, or as a VCF attachment. I think the latter is more standard, but is trickier to do. Rather than use Insert>Item, one can:

    1. <LI>Select or open the contact and choose, from the Action menu, Forward as vCard; then drag the VCF attachment to the target message (or use the message Outlook has created automatically);

      <LI>Select or open the contact and choose, from the File menu, Save As, specifying vCard format (or, with a contact open, File>Export to vCard file); then use Insert>File to add the VCF attachment to the target message;
    If there are easier ways, I know them not.
