how to make OL (2007) to use custom contact form when importing / opening .VCF?

my custom form works fine within the program, but when i double-click on a .VCF it opens in default, not the custom form. and therefore i can't save it like that - it would not line-up with the rest of the contacts.

secondly - when opening .VCF, OL seems to default to using character encoding that doesn't talk right with whatever google exports, which is UTF-8, as it should be.

You would only be able to set it at the time of import if you used a macro to handle to the import. You can run either a macro or a program called DocMessageClass to make the change after importing. DocMessageClass is free and works great - but if you want to use a macro, see http://www.slipstick.com/developer/vba-set-existing-contacts-custom-form/ for more information (there is a link to docmessageclass there too)
