Since your email was directed at many people, the I+you plural prefix {Sa-} 
would be better:  

Savan!  ghoj[moH]wI'pu' QeDwI'pu' je.

If this verb is placed after the noun phrase, it makes a sentence with 
object and verb, a more cohesive and unitary structure, assuming that the 
object, which is nominally third person, can be used as the object of a verb with 
a second person object prefix.  I don't see any conflict with the "prefix 
trick", though, since there is no indirect object to confuse things.  

ghoj[moH]wI'pu' QeDwI'pu' je Savan.

If the object person conflict is too great, then simply use {vI-} on the 

ghoj[moH]wI'pu' QeDwI'pu' je vIvan.
