Dear [name omitted for privacy]
A VCF is a "vcard" usually with personal details of the sender (such as
address, e-mail, title, etc.) I think it's in ASCII.
I can't help you on how to read it, since it depends on the mailer that
you have. If this is not a recent mailer, you may not be able to access it
at all. You will probably be able to save it to disk. My Eudora mailer (on
Windows 3.1) automatically saves these to a directory C:\eudora\attach. It
then gives them memorable names like vcard39.vcf. They can be opened as an
I have about 100K of accumulated attachments, many from XML-DEV.
In my opinion it is unnecessary to attach any files, including *.vcf, to
postings to XML-DEV and I have asked the posters if they would take the
trouble not to. I'm sure they will take note of this.
Best wishes with XML :-)
