Outlook Tips - Sending a Contact to other people in Outlook

I am just getting wise on using "Outlook", and wanted to share another tip I found really useful. Hope you will, too!

If you have contacts stored in Outlook, and you want to send a contact that is saved onto other people... here is an easy way to do it:

Go to your Contacts folder. Then right-click on the contact you want to send, then click Forward. A new e-mail message will be created with that contact included, (as an attachment). Next, enter the e-mail address of who you would like to forward it to, the click Send.

When the recipients receive the email with the contact attached, all they have to do is to drag the attachment onto the Contacts icon in the Outlook Shortcuts bar or drag the attachment onto the Contacts folder in the folder list. Then  it will be automatically added to their contacts list.

Try it out. I found this to be handy.

What version of Outlook ae you using?  I tried this and when I right click on the contact, Forward isn't an option. . . .
