and send them a welcome email!

Ok, so, I have 779 users to setup on an ocPortal website. If I import the usernames and email addresses and set a default password for all users via CSV upload, will it send out a welcome email to each user automatically with the import? if not, can I setup a welcome email to send out to new users that will include their new username and a link to set/reset their password?

I would believe if at the very least you could use the newsletter system to accomplish the same effect. But I am new so I don't know if there is a more efficient way?

What error, and can you provide a sample file that generates that error?

I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms.

Failing this -- you can export a member CSV from ocPortal, and use that as a point of comparison to whatever CSV you are trying to import. Manipulate field headings to try and make it match what ocPortal supports.
