(keep in mind that html-formatted email is a swear-to-god internet standard)
I almost never see HTML-formatted mail. I suppose I get sent quite a bit of it, but luckily almost all mail clients that send HTML mail send it as multipart/alternative with a corresponding text/plain part. My mail server notices this, strips out the text/html, and everything is tickety-boo. Plus my mail archive is less than half the size it would be otherwise.
