Is it possible to send emails in plaintext?

I am trying to send an email in plaintext. Basically the user fills out a MS form, this form fires off a flow that sends in an email into the IBC FootPrints Service Core to create a ticket with details pre-filled.

 

The problem? Sending these emails in HTML keeps resulting in the fields not being processed correctly. Sending in plaintext from my own email works, but when I try to remove the HTML code in the flow everything just gets stacked together once emailed.

However instead of something structured see the following:

"You cannot do that" is not a solution.

Wow! This is very frustrating - I am having the same issue. I'm trying to send an email to an outside vendors helpdesk app but it can only read/parse plain text emails.
