I'm sure it couldn't hurt - unless you get really ridiculous and start emailing them obsessively. But I doubt how much a letter of intent can help someone who isn't on the waitlist already or an auto-admit they would have considered rejecting for yield protection. But, again, I'm sure it couldn't hurt. Depending on the size of the school/efficiency of the administration, the email might get added to your file - but I doubt most schools would take the time/effort to print that out.
If you want an addendum added for real, send them a letter asking them to add the addendum (on another sheet of paper) to your file - I figure being direct as opposed to just hoping they'll do it by themselves is your best bet. Best of luck.
