[horde] hook for locking a preference

I have a simple problem without a simple solution. I run
https://webmail.oregonstate.edu which provides webmail services for
several different IMAP servers on campus. The major one is our ONID email
which every person on campus can use. The other servers belong to various
One department has several different email domains that it is
consolidating onto one IMAP server. However, I am keeping multiple
webmail server entries for them in order to "set" the domain. For
example, they use "physics.oregonstate.edu", "geo.oregonstate.edu", and
"math.oregonstate.edu". All of these email addresses are aliases to
"science.oregonstate.edu". Of course, the faculty want to keep their
"math", "geo", and "physics" email addresses, so we can't just change them
all over to "user at science.oregonstate.edu".
I have locked the from_addr preference so that our users cannot set their
own email address, to prevent abuse by students mainly. It would be great
if I could allow any of the "science" users to set their from_addr. Then
I could consolidate the list of webmail servers as well.
The simple idea is to have a "hook" of some kind that controls whether a
preference is actually locked.
Is there a way to do this in Horde 3.x? Have I overlooked another
solution to this?
