IntroductionMicroformats are a way to embed semantic information to (x)html. I posted a link to an introduction before. hCard is one such format for embedding contact information.
The Problem with EmailMost email programs are getting clever in how they automatically add email addresses sent and received to your address book. The issue is it's only an email address, you have to manually add phone numbers and office location separately.
Embedding Microformats in EmailIt strikes me a solution is rather simple. I use signature at the end all of my emails. The signature itself matches the layout and look of my business card.
