Many of the HTML-only emails come from automated email systems. I
usually respond and explain to them why I would appreciate a plain-text
email. I list a few reasons. I find that one reason that they seem
particularly responsive to is to point out that people with disabilities
may have trouble with HTML-only emails. At the bottom of the email, I
always tell them to forward my suggestion to their tech team. It takes
time to write these emails, and is frustrating, but I find that some are
actually responsive to it.
