I am sure everyone who uses Outlook 98/express/2000 has this patch

In my opinion, a vCard (vcf) is a reasonable exception. It is quite
common
for them to be sent. They are not an executable. If there is not any
vulnerability caused by opening them then it is reasonable to allow
them. Of
course I know it is much easier to suggest such a thing than to
implement.
