You save a contact as a Vcard. When you create a signature and attempt to select the Vcard in the Signature Picker, the list may not display the Vcard that you just created.


When you save a contact as a vCard, it is saved in either the default location, or a Most Recently Used (MRU) location. The Signature Picker does not look in these locations, so the vCard does not appear on the list.


To resolve this problem, follow these steps:

  1. On the Tools menu, click Options, and on Mail Format tab, click Signature Picker. Click New to create a new signature, click Next, and then click OK to close all dialog boxes.
  2. Open a contact that contains the information you want included in the vCard. On the File menu, click Save As. In the Save as type list, click vCard Files (*.vfc), and save it to the folder for appropriate for your version of Microsoft Windows:

    For Windows 95 and Windows 98:
    C:\Windows\Application data\Microsoft\Shared\Signatures

    For Windows NT:
    C:\Winnt\Profiles\Username\Application data\Microsoft\Signatures

  3. On the Tools menu, click Options, on the Mail Format tab, click Signature Picker. Click New to create a new signature and then click Next. The vCard for your contact should appear in the Attach this business card (vCard) to this signature list.
