If you add 'conflicts', you won't have to advise users to remove the
original package.

Why not just update the masqmail package to the latest 0.2 version (or
just a pkgrel bump) and add a post-update/install message saying "this
package will no longer be maintained, please choose between masqmail-0.2
and masqmail-0.3 to receive further updates.
