FWIW, I just switched to claws-mail (akonadified kmail2 not being my 
thing!).  I've been /very/ happy with its "strip HTML" mode, which strips 
out all the tags and just shows the text.  With a few white-listed 
exceptions, all HTML /mail/ ends up in the trash, but I use a different 
instance of it (by setting $HOME and $TMPDIR in a wrapper script so it 
doesn't conflict with my mail instance) with the feed-plugin for my RSS/
ATOM feeds, which of course are XML, and it strips all that junk out very 
nicely, leaving attachements as just that, attachments.

So there's a very nice third way between having to read the raw HTML and 
actually parsing and displaying it, complete with potential 
vulnerabilities, etc, for those willing to use clients that enable this 
third way. =:^)

(But I'm still using pan for news/nntp, including my list feeds thru 
gmane, and it simply gives me the ugly raw html, so it's not like I've 
lost track entirely of what it feels like.)
