Sending a Contact to Somebody Else

If you want to send details of one of your contacts to another e-mail recipient you can us e the Forward action in the Contacts folder to send the contact by e-mail. To forward the contact, either click your right mouse button on the contact and choose Forward from the menu that appears or double- click on the contact to open it and then use the Actions menu to select the Forward item.  There may be an option under the Actions menu labelled Forward as vCard. The vCard is an internet standard format for sharing business cards and so it is a good idea to use this option if it is available to be sure that your recipient will be able to open the contact. 

The diagram below shows the vCard  for a contact attached to an e-mail to John Pratt.
