10.4: Add links for vCards, etc. to Mail signatures Apps
Tiger only hintTo make vCard files available for download in your signature in Mail, you can now include a link in your signature files. Just type the text as usual in your signature; i.e. Download vCard. Next, select that text, Control-click on it, and select the new Edit Link option from the pop-up. Enter the web address where your vCard is stored, i.e. http://www.myserver.com/myvcard.vcf.

By doing so, your signature looks nice -- no long HTML address is visible -- and you don't need to send your vCard as an attachment. This works only in 10.4's Mail.app.

The "edit link..." functionality isn't limited to the signatures. You can use it in regular messages. However, the link is omitted from the plain text alternative altogether, so you may want to avoid it.

Rather than using http as the protocol in the link, use addressbook:// and you avoid downloading (*) the vcard. With http the vcard will be downloaded to your download folder and won't be deleted automatically.


* Well, you download it to a temporary location where it is automatically deleted after the addition to the Address Book.

I tried "addressbook://www..." and it opens the address book, but doesn't seem to add the vCard.
now mac is 10.7, it might have changed?...
thanks, Anselm
