Exchange 2013/Outlook 2013 POP seems to be converting vcards from version 2.1 to 3.0 thus losing formatting RRS feed

  • Question

  • Exchange 2013/Outlook 2013 POP seems to be converting vcards from version 2.1 to 3.0 and thus losing formatting.  I am using Exchange 2013 and Outlook 2013 on all machines.  Before we moved to Exchange Server 2013 in-house we were using an external vendor supplying POP in which we did not have this problem of formatting.  How to I modify the POP server on Exchange Server 2013 to use vCard v2.1 as well?  Please help!

    When sending to pop from Outlook (which uses vCard v2.1) it converts it to vcard 3.0 which messes up formatting as these characters for example:

    Double Quote= ”

    Single quote= ’

    11 point size –
