Everyone knows the problem: How to keep the address-book up-to-date?
In today's connected world, everyone is getting to know more and more people. Be it in business or in our private lives, the number of people we are interacting is increasing daily. But it is difficult to keep track of all these contacts. For example, here are the average numbers of contacts for every member on
And there is one thing that makes it even more difficult: Although most networks allow for the download of a user's connections as vCards, these are not complete in most cases and lack such information as Office Phone number, Fax, Company URL, Cellphone-number or address.
So, in most cases the best source for complete addresses (especially in business) are the people's eMail signatures.
Bringing eMail signatures into the address-book is a real hassle since it has to be done manually.
There is a solution for it
- register for vicarda.com
(free, only name and eMail address required)
- add vicarda's vCard to your address-book
- forward any eMail that contains contact information
(= eMail signature) to firstname.lastname@example.org
- vicarda.com returns an eMail with a vCard that is automatically generated from the eMail signature
- None of the eMails sent to vicarda or vCards generated by vicarda are stored on vicarda's servers - they are deleted immediately
