Not easily from the UI but possible from the cli. The admin user lacks
the inetOrgPerson objectclass which provides the mail attribute.

I haven't given this a great deal of thought so can't guarantee that
there won't be any subtle issues now or in the future, but given that
this objectclass only has MAY attributes is should be ok.

$ kinit admin
$ ipa user-mod --email --addattr
objectclass=inetorgperson admin
