vCard is a file format standard for electronic business cards. vCards are often attached to e mail messages, but can be exchanged in other ways, such as on the World Wide Web or instant Messaging. They can contain name and address information, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, URLs, logos, photographs and audio clips.
vCard is the standard for sharing Contact information between E-mail Clients and other applications that store Contacts.
