On FreeBSD, Thunderbird 24, I think, the only way I found to do it,
was to go to composing, and do something with domains, saying that all 
domains should receive plain text.  I also can't find a way to auto 
word wrap when using it, I rely upon my eye. 

I use it at work because I need the filtering for our imap server.  My
other option is to use mutt, pull down all mail from the server and filter
it on my local machine.  With all the various system messages that the
admin group receives, I have about 30 filters that I use, and I've just
been too lazy to set up imapfilter.
