No.  Cron needs some way to report about its jobs, mdadm has to notify about
failures, etc, etc.

On the other hand, going from a full blown MTA like exim to something like
ssmtp or dma¹ would be a great idea.

[¹]. dma would be far better as it can handle transient failures when
configured to send to a remote host, however, that cronjob every 5 minutes
disqualifies it for the job of a laptop MTA.  That's fixable, though.
