You can configure Thunderbird to use plain text (compose and send) and
also set it up so it treats html as text and not display all the
internal content,  logos, pictures and other nonsense people insist on
sending, sometimes replying to an html e-mail results in the reply being
html unless you set it up or notice.

No idea what happens at the other end, causes all sorts of issues at
both ends as it is.
