The plain/MIME setting only affects digests. It has no effect
whatsoever on non-digest subscribers.

The actual option bit exists for all subscribers and is controlled for
new subscribers by the Digest options -> mime_is_default_digest
setting, but it only actually affects the format of the digest for
digest subscribers.
