Actually, he's right.  Do the research on email and the RFCs involved.
Plain text is readable by everyone without exception.  HTML is a /web/
standard, not an email standard, no matter what Microsoft wants us to
Heh, just try reading an HTML mail in plain text.  Many mail clients
only use plain text.  You, in sending HTML, are doing a grave disservice
to the reader with only a plain text MUA.

Plus, it is the standard here, /on this list/, to send plain text.  In
view of that, why aren't you doing so?
