Issue with Email Campaign Management starter solution - adding recipients

Post

I've been trying to use the email campaign management starter solution to send out some HTML emails to customers.  I have managed to modify the send campaign script to send HTML mail, which works well.  The issue I'm having is with imported contacts.

I imported about 400 contacts from an excel file which loaded them in fine, however I am unable to add these imported contacts to the campaign.  Contacts that I created manually in filemaker work without any issues, however it isn't practical to add hundreds of contacts manually when I have them already on file.

Another issue is adding a few hundred recipients to a campaign when they aren't already in a group.  Is there any easy way to add all contacts to a group, or to add all contacts to the campaign?

I've already tried searching the forums which turned up a few similar and unanswered questions.
