Glad to see you have something working already. Just thought I'd comment 
on how we deal with it. It is basically a two step process for us, to 
ensure it gets handled properly in different situations.

First, we have a Torque Submit filter, which actually does lots of 
things, but one thing it does do is add the email address of the user to 
the job (if not already defined by the user). It does this by talking to 
our accounting management software.

Second, we have configured postfix so that it will actually talk to the 
LDAP server to request the email address of the user if it trying to 
send to addresses we know the user is not on ... e.g. management server, 
login nodes, etc... This is done by using the ldap alias map method.
