I have poor interactive connectivity at the moment, so perhaps this has been discussed over zephyr, however I'd recommend some sort of communication to the effect that you're going to begin doing this. I'd also recommend picking a From: address and maybe Subject: prefix ahead of time and informing the users of these, to avoid the problems net-security usually encounters, which are along the lines of "I didn't understand the e-mail or recognize the sender, so I ignored it and/or blacklisted the address and/or changed my Kerberos password and assumed everything was fine".
