Apologies in advance. I know this is all off-topic for
a gnupg mailing list, but for those who really hate
html email, and are able to function without it,
there's a potentially useful mail filter I wrote that
converts everything to text that can be converted, and
deletes everything else.

It makes it look like everyone is sending you plain text. :-)

For everyone else, I recommend lots of phishing training
to mitigate the biggest risks of html email.

At least until gmail/outlook/etc. implement, by default,
the equivalent of Thunderbird's brilliant Torpedo
anti-phishing addon.
