Sending an email when an Active Directory account is locked

Is it possible that when a user's account on Active Directory is locked, as well as an entry being made in the event logs, can Active Directory send an email as an extra record of the fact that the account was locked?

The reason I'm asking is that our company auditors have made this a "requirement" (yeah, in the loosest sense of the word IMHO!), but if it isn't possible, I'll gladly relay the information :-)

Regards
Paul
