Project: OpenNTF Mail Experience (Managed by Vince Schuurman)

I did some initial testing with the VCard - Up to now I've always used stationary to add a signature and a VCard to an e-mail.
Was intrigued by this new option in the Template. However, I've noticed that it does not include a Firstname and Lastname in the .VCF file. So when a recipient double clicks the attachment the window allowing them to save the details, they have to go and type the name in manually.
Also not too keen on the position of the VCard file. It is right next to the last word in the memo, which doesn't look very nice. Would also be nice to have a text based sig followed by the VCF, for those recipients whose mail system does not support VCF. I know you can do this already but its plain text. My signature in stationery doc has rich text with mailto: and URL: hotspots as appropriate.
In summary, all you'd need to do is:
Prepend First name and Last name fields to the VCF file. - Needed Anyway!!
Have a checkbox on the form that says Include information as a text signature. (with hotspots).
Have a hide when field to display the text that will be added.
