My bank sends me email in html, and I'm not going to throw it away
just because I don't like it.

Any bank that insisted on spamming my email box with "rich" text
wouldn't be my bank any longer than the time it takes to switch banks
to one that understands the meaning of customer service.

That would be the smallest of my worries. First would be what they do to
my money.

I know a bank here with very good internet services, easy to use and
secure (password, keyword card (multiple ids) and cellular SMS double
check). On the other hand, it is one of the intervened banks in Spain.

Choose your poison.

Paying bills online doesn't equate to wanting bills received online.
My personal financial information doesn't need to be scattered across
a web of email servers and their backups. If and when I do want to see
a bill online, I open a web browser, not an email app, and have
encryption in play to prevent thieving.

Usually the data itself is not in the email, that is just a reminder that
you have bank statements to fetch from the secure web in pdf format,
hopefully cryptographically signed.

I don't trust cloud storage to have what I want when I want it for as
long as I want it, which paper bills give me automatically.

You will have to. Thunderbird has just announced they stop development,
go use webmail instead.
