I suspect it may depend on the mail program one uses.
I'm using Outlook Express, and that certainly does allow such teaching
(Tools/Options/Read tab; tick the "display all messages in plain text" box).

Very much so. Even HTML messages that aren't possessed of millions of
colours have a tendency to show up (if not prevented) in Arial 9-point,
which is teeny.
(Several lists I'm on insist that members use plain text only.)
