Discussion on: How do you implement your email design?

Not exactly a comment on how I implemented a design, but rather something I love for people to consider when they are designing mails.

A critical tip I really wish all developers would take to heart is: Please give your users the option to opt out of HTML-mails. Give people an option to receive notifications or other mail-based communication in plain text.

I know that for some applications the visual component is inherently important, necessary for a functioning application even. In that cases, send me a link to a HTML-site. But please, please, please - allow me to receive plaintext-mails.
