Is there a good introductory tutorial to creating and using rules?

I'm afraid not.

I have some idea of how they work, but it'd be nice to learn from someone with experience.

That said, is there a way to have a rule set the display part that should be preferred for a given message? I “Prefer plain text” in my preferences because it works better for me in 98% of cases, but there are a few addresses that always send mangled (or utterly useless) plain-text parts, so I always have to flip to the HTML part to make any sense of what they're sending. I'd love to have a rule Just Do That™ for me before I even open the messages.

Hmm, this is not currently possible. The preference (when switching manually) is actually saved in a virtual header which means that **if** there was a rule action to set virtual headers (or just this one header) then it would be possible to do something like the above. Combined with a smart mailbox matching such messages and the use of the “is in” comparison method then you might not even need to create more than 1 rule.

So, all I can offer you is to keep in mind that it would be useful to be able to set this virtual header using a rule action.
