Follow but... but... if I receive an HTML mail I would rather switch viewer than get an automatically transformed mail into text, because I would not see what the author intended me to see.

In the end, it is quite personal; I would prefer a world where nobody sends me HTML mail, but where I get toots with nicely rendered math formulas. Most people might have those preferences reversed :-).

In any case, the advantage of Markdown and LaTeX is that the unrendered version is so readable.
