NEW feature - bulk user creation from Outlook

We've added a new feature to the user administration area:
  • Users of Microsoft Outlook can now download a small tool which automatically creates Matchpeg user accounts from contacts in Outlook.
The software can be downloaded from the existing bulk user-creation page. It's a simple wizard-based tool which works as follows:
  1. You log into Matchpeg using your normal user name and password.
  2. You let the software connect to Microsoft Outlook - this requires you to accept a standard Outlook security warning about automated access to your contacts.
  3. You choose the contacts you want to create as users in Matchpeg.
  4. You tell the tool to do its stuff.
The new user accounts are given individual random passwords which are sent out by e-mail.

(As is no doubt obvious, the tool is only for people who are users of (a) Microsoft Outlook, and therefore (b) Microsoft Windows.)
