Whether you like HTML e-mail or not, there are a few steps you can do to make it less "offensive".
My suggestions are:
Remove the font declarations from the CSS -- This will make the mail be displayed in the preferred (often monospaced) font of the mailer itself. For example, the current Poi e-mails stick out like a sore thumb when viewed among my other emails currently - but if I remove the font declarations, they look the same as any other plain text email (with bold typeface here and there + working links)
Don't use italics anywhere in the styles -- Italics are harder to read, and mostly look crap on all platform renderings maybe with the exception of OS X. Also, italicized monospaced fonts don't look good (as per the first point)
