    Hi, The above-shared information is very useful and informative. A few days ago, I was also searching for a solution with which I could convert my Outlook Contacts to vCard (VCF) file format. Through Google search, I have come across SysTools vCard Export Tool. This tool can export Outlook contact files in five formats: VCF, single vCard, WAB, Google & Yahoo Contacts. The free demo version of the tool is also available. I found this tool very efficient and reliable as it is capable of migrating a large number of Outlook Contact files easily.
