Import Email Addresses From Vcards With Item#. Prefixed To Email Line

A certain VCF file does not show the contact's email address when the VCF is imported to the Local Address Book. However, when the VCF file is opened using a Text Editor (e.g. Notepad) or viewed from iPhone, the address is shown.

If the VCF file is opened using a Text Editor, the following information can be seen:



PRODID:-//Apple Inc.//iOS 7.1.2//EN


FN:FirstName LastName





TEL;type=CELL;type=VOICE;type=pref:<mobile number goes here>

X-MS-IMADDRESS;type=pref:FirstName LastName <>




Notice in the above that the lines which contain the addresses show "item#.EMAIL" as opposed to just "EMAIL".

If we manually remove "item#." and save the changes, the addresses would then appear from Notes regardless if the VCF was just opened with Notes or the VCF is imported to Contacts.

I request to have Notes be able to import the addresses even if the VCF is in this format.
