nearly any mailing-list has it written clear, some even reject HTML
and on some others you get warned by the owner (postfix as example)

Note: Spam filters don't like messages with empty Subjects; just use e.g.
"subscribe" or "unsubscribe". Spam filters are also more likely to reject
HTML-formatted messages; please use plain text

because the message had no single HTML formatting and
was written in plain but as HTML may be a godd reason

it hardly makes sense to write email in HTML, they just
explode after some replies/quotes and forwardings with
different clients while a conversation in plaintext
survises thousands of replies without lose a sane quoting
