they have passwords, they just don't know them. So I'm assuming that 
when you bulk loaded, you turned off having the "welcome" message 
sent, which would have sent them their password.

I'd suggest you run the script that sends out the monthly "you are 
subscribed to, this is your password" message, which'll give them the 
information they need.

Passwords are, FWIW, random, so there's no way you can get them this 
info any other way, unless they each go to the page and have it 
re-sent to them manually.
