How hard would it be to add something to firstboot that asks for an
email address to send emails from the system to?  If the person does
not want to use that then it defaults to the created account and runs
newaliases on that. I realize I am really really old school here, but
the reason I use it even as a desktop is that I can get email sent to
somewhere without a lot of licensed or extra software added.

[A group I worked at previously had this in their firstboot so that
logging and email could be sent to a system administrator so they knew
what was going. ]
