With the caveats that you'll need additional html_strip=1 indexes for
both the main and the delta index (otherwise <tags> will be stripped
from text/plain content), and that we've not tested it locally, it
should probably work, yes.  We opted to provide the text/plain
configuration as the default because most html mail has a text/plain
alternative.  But as rt-setup-fulltext-index states:

        Below is a simple Sphinx configuration which can be used to
        index all text/plain attachments in your database.  This
        configuration is not ideal; you should read the Sphinx
        documentation to understand how to configure it to better suit
        your needs.
