Ok, good. The first thing i forget is to include the 'statics'.

True what Oliver says. There's a WIKI page that explains a lot about it, i think for now it's your best shot at getting plain-text to work: http://wiki.typo3.org/TemplaVoila#Plaintext_newsletter_with_DirectMailer_and_TV 
The next chapter http://wiki.typo3.org/TemplaVoila#TemplaVoila.21_FCEs_can.60t_be_rendered_in_plain-text_version tells about rendering FCE's.

Have you seen this WIKI page already?

I think to even be able to render ANY TemplaVoila content, you need to put another extension to work (like svo_tvplaintext).
If I remember correctly, there are at least 2 extensions who want to provide plain-text rendering for TemplaVoila content.
I got only 1 of them to work and I don't think that worked right with FCEs.
