Is there a built-in tool to export Outlook 2010 contacts to .cvf file?

Yup you click on file / options / advanced / export. But then you have to figure out what to add to it

Apparently, there isn't any option to export to cvf format! There is an 'import' from cvf format, though.

My apologies, guys. It should be .'vcf' file (VCard file) rather than 'cvf' .

I am very sorry for the silly error. :blush:

You can only import not export vcf. Well, I cant see any option to export as vcf

Thanks, Iantech. I think you link is for exporting the vcard file to some other formats.

I want to export Outlook contact files to Vcard file format.

Oh, sorry. ok, ready for this...

Open contacts, select all contacts, click "forward contact" at the top and select "as a business card". When the message windows comes up with all your contacts in it as attachments, save to drafts. Open drafts and highlight email, in preview screen, click on an attachment and select "save all attachments".
