Yes, but you might not want to do that if the person you're recruiting (the
sender) is technical.

I know I for one would have a negative impression of the technical capacity of
the company if I received such a request if the original was truly innocuous and
not anything a reasonable person would consider questionable.

I know my own angles on such things are harsher than most, but do consider the
kind of impression you're creating with such things.

In this case, you may not want to hire someone so opinionated, so that might be
perfectly fine. I'm simply advising that the "resend as text please" may create
a negative impression you might not wish to convey to potential customers,
partners or recruits. Be aware of it, consider it, and establish your policies
