HTML is still for web pages, not email... even in 2007

That article may be from 2002, but the points made are as valid today as they were then.

Bear in mind that there's a lot of mail clients out there that still don't display HTML - and even more folks who disable HTML in their client of choice.

It's also worth remembering that most spam filtering systems score HTML mail (especially if it has embedded images) rather higher than plain text only.

Any personal preferences aside, if you want to be sure that your recipient sees your message, plain text is the sensible choice. Plain text with the HTML attached (as many mail clients deliver) is a reasonable compromise if you HAVE to use HTML.
