I think you may have missed a significant point of that article - that 
HTML email, *when well-structured*, can be _more_ usable for a 
non-visual mail client than text-only email - at least for someone using 
JAWS, which AFAIK is the most common screenreader.  So if you structure 
your markup well, keep attached images small and sparing, and offer a 
text-only alternative, HTML mail may be a worthwhile effort.  YMMV!
