My entry (OS X Server 10.2.8, MM 2.1.5 installed from source) is:

HTML_TO_PLAIN_TEXT_COMMAND = 'LYNX_TEMP_SPACE=/tmp /usr/local/bin/lynx 
-force_html -dump %(filename)s'

I changed it to that based on a thread on this list a couple years ago. 
I honestly don't remember know what the issue was at the time, but I 
may have had to install lynx from source. OS X 10.3 client doesn't have 
lynx installed, but I don't know about Server 10.3.
