Plain Text Email

A plain text email contains only text; no images, stylized fonts, or hyperlinks. Multi-part MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) bundles together a plain text version and an HTML version of the deployed email. Additionally, spam filters prefer to see a plain text alternative to ensure the email deployment is legitimate.
