Default Convert business card into a vCard

Is it possible to scan a business card, convert it into a vCard, email it to
someone and be populated into their Outlook?

[idea, of course, is to avoid retyping business cards]

Thanks,
Susanna

they would need to open and save - you can't automatically add it to their
contacts folder.

Hi Susanna,

There is a card scanner that works great and is very accurate. It scans it
into it's own application and then imports them right into Outlook. We have
one here that every shares. This is the one we use.
