More than the "prefers plain-text email" which might make it a bit  
too binary.
What about discussing on the "option choices and its challenges".

* HTML <-> text conversion
* Interface choices for receiving emails
* statistics of user choices (when they have a clear choice)

Is there someone who is able to address these topics?
