VCard Converter component

The vCard format is a universal format of storing contact information and it is supported by many email clients. You can send your contact data in vCard format with every message, so as your recipients would have the most latest and full contact information about you. The same way, some messages with vCard files attached might gather in your mailbox. And if there are a lot of messages like this, importing the data from the messages to your address book manually can be very exhausting and time-consuming. This Microsoft Outlook add-in allows to automate the work with the files in vCard format.

With the help of VCard Converter you can:

  • export data from the vCard format files into your address book or contacts;
  • import data from the address book to the vCard format files;
  • process a great number of contacts simultaneously.

Example of component use:

You have a separate folder with the stored contacts, and you want to transfer these contacts to another person. If there are a lot of contacts, importing the contacts manually can be very exhausting. This Outlook add-in can fulfill this task in less than a minute.

This Outlook add-in is supplied with a ready-to-use list of rules, which will help you to carry out virtually all actions with the contact information stored in the vCard format. You can also create your own rules.

If our example it is necessary to import data from the address book into the file with the extension VCF, which can be sent to the recipient by email afterwards. For that, right-click with the mouse, when you are in the contacts folder, and select from the contextual menu “vCard Converter --> Export all contacts from current contact folder into vCard file”. The program will ask you to enter the name of the file to be created, after this it will process all contacts and create a VCF file that will have all imported information saved in it:

Works as expected!! Rather jealous of your capabilities of "manipulating" the registry. Thanks for your help!! (again) The add-ins from MAPILab have been everything I expected, and then some. The support that has been provided could not, in my opinion, be improved on in any way!!
