How to Set Up a Microsoft Outlook vCard


A vCard is a file that acts as an electronic business card. Microsoft’s Outlook email client offers you the option to attach your vCard to your signature, allowing anyone you communicate with to see your name, business, position and contact information. Setting up a vCard to include in your automatic signature takes a few steps but is worthwhile if you use your email to conduct business.

Things You'll Need

  • Microsoft Outlook
  • Open Microsoft Outlook and allow the program to load.

  • Go to “Tools,” then “Options.” Once the “Options” box appears, click on the “Mail Format” tab.

  • Click on “Signature Picker” and then select the “New” option. Enter the name you would like to use for your vCard and click “Next.”

  • Type in the information you would like your vCard to contain. For Microsoft Outlook 2003 and earlier version users, click “New vCard from Contact.” If you use Microsoft 2007, simply click “Business Card.”

  • Select the contact you would like to add and click “OK.” Click “Finish.” This will bring you back to the signature editor; click “OK,” and this will complete your signature entry.
