Sure, but...

- If you're just installing a single-user desktop, there's not really
  a usage case for a local mail delivery agent
- If you're using it as a base for installing Some Other Thing, you're
  already doing customization; this is just one more thing
- If you're installing a lab of machines you want to forward cron stuff
  centrally, you're (hopefully) doing kickstart, not shoving the livecd
  in each machine
