How di I delete Vcard info included in a signature file

Outlook allows you to create signature files you can include when creating an email.  I recently included a Vcard with the signature file, unfortunately the vCard file also included all of the tabs from the contact file.  There's a bunch of info in there and I don't want getting out by mistake.

I know I can simply just adjust the signature file to not include the vcard file but I'd rather delete the reference to it in the signature file so that I don't make a mistake one day and start sending it out.

How do I delete the reference to the vCard info permanently from the signature file??

You need to edit the signature.

Click Tools/Options/Mail Format then click the Signatures button at the bottom.  Now highlight the first signature, if you have more than one, and click the Edit button.  At the bottom of this window you will see the option to include a vCard from your Contact.  In the drop down list, change the selection to None then click OK.

Do this for all signatures that you have attached the vCard to.

Yep, I could do that but like I said in the question I want to delete it so I don't mistakenly include it someday.

I've all ready set it to none, but there's got to be someway of removing it totally.

Go to the following folder C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Microsoft\Signatures and delete the vCard (.vcf) file that is in there.

This will remove the reference from your signature vCard drop down list, but won't affect the Contact that it came from.
