    vcards in outlook 2003 (outlook 2003 SP1)

    Is there anyway to send your picture that is in your vcard? I have a picture in my profile and have outlook configured to send a vcard with every e-mail, but my picture does not show up.

    The vCard standard isn't very fancy. And the implementation isn't especially consistent, even between Outlook and Outlook Express. But maybe you can include a link to your picture on a publicly accessible web site rather than embedding it.

    I don't think I can help any further with this. Outlook 2002 doesn't even seem to have Picture as a field in a Contact.

    As a test, I put a picture in my own Contact data, and then saved my record as a separate vCard file. When I opened that file in Outlook, the picture was not embedded. So my guess is that the graphic is not part the vCard standard. Your customer will have to attach her picture as a separate item, or in her signature, or as a URL as Jefferson has suggested.
