Address Book

The Address Book application is a network-based directory search system and contact information manager. Using the LDAP protocol (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) and vCard 2.1 Personal Data Interchange format, it is based entirely on open standards and can be used in a cross-platform environment.

vCards

The most common way to send contact information with an e-mail is by adding a signature. Unfortunately, there is no standard for signatures, so picking up contact information from one is an exercise in futility. The vCard (.vcf) format attempts to change this by defining a simple cross-platform MIME standard for an electronic business card. vCards can be used on PDAs such as the Palm Pilot, and then copied to your system and used directly within the Address Book application.
