Prefer plain-text message display in Apple Mail

If a received mail contains a plain-text part I prefer Mail to display that instead of the often more “stylish” HTML or Rich-Text parts. While this cannot be configured via the GUI, it can be from the command line.

This is a reminder post for myself and anyone who might be interested.

Turn on:

defaults write com.apple.mail PreferPlainText -bool TRUE

Turn off:

defaults delete com.apple.mail PreferPlainText

Mail.app should be closed while you do this.
