Bulk user add through query
I have a moderated e-mail list of 750+ subscribers that I would like to convert over to forums.

Instead of adding them one by one, or requesting they swap over, I would like to be more proactive. Change is difficult and I don't plan to be gentle :-)

Could a query be written that would parse a delimited file of e-mail addresses to create user names and temp passwords, and then e-mail out validation messages to each address containing the new username and pass?

ex. JohnDoe@hotmail.com would become user "johndoe".

Obviously this could be abused, but in this case I have a double opt-in list to play with. Thoughts?
