Sorry. I was distracted by your reference to "digest options sent out
as HTML" and didn't fully comprehend your problem.

No, nothing will change if the non-digest members switch to 'plain'.
The plain/MIME setting affects only digests and is irrelevant for
non-digest members.

As far as the problem with individual messages sent to Yahoo members is
concerned, This is still a Yahoo issue 

The basic problem is that the post is not simple plain text (probably
it is at least multipart/alternative, even after content filtering if
any) so the msg_header and msg_footer can't simply be added to the
message body, but have to be added as separate MIME parts and Yahoo
mail is not doing a good job of rendering the resultant message.

This issue is discussed in some detail in the FAQ at

You may be able to avoid or mitigate the issue by not having a
msg_header, but this may not be satisfactory for other reasons.
