Without looking at the script, I'd hazard that it shouldn't be too hard
to grep /etc/passwd for the GCOS field. e.g., add something like:

open PASSWD, "</etc/passwd" or die "$!";
While ($line = <PASSWD>) {
        next if ( $line !=~ /^$user/ );
        $user =~ s/^.*?:.*?:.*:.*?:(.*?):.*$/$1/;

You'll probably want to mangle the address to be still valid, so that
people can still reply.

(No, I didn't test that regex, and yes, it is probably a bad idea. For
illustrative purposes only.)

Things could always be worse; for instance, you could be ugly and 
work in the Post Office.
