When sending a vCard from an Outlook contact, it puts all information from all tabs in the .VCF file.  We only want "Business" information in the vCard, not the Home address or cell number for instance.  However, we will want to keep that information in our contact so we can't delete it.  Is there a way we can do this?

We don't want to Insert the contact as text, we want the client to be able to easily import the vCard.

Unfortunatley you can really pick and choose

What you can do is save the VCard or vcf to your desktop
Open it in Notepad
Remove the personal details
Save it back to username.vcf
then attache that vCard from your desktop to the email

I did find something that worked .... you can open the contact and go to the Business Card icon and remove the information you don't want.  It doesn't remove it from the Contact only when you send as a vCard.  I was hoping for an easier way but I guess this is it!  Thanks for your input, I appreciate it.
