Would you consider adding a member option to include the actual PM text when receiving e-mail notification about a new PM, please? Several members have asked me of this feature.
A bit more radical approach would be to not distinguish between PM or e-mail from the point of sender's view at all, but let the receiver choose whether s/he wants to receive PMs or e-mails or both, or PMs with notifications (without the message body) when being privately contacted by a member.
Terabyte did such mod: http://www.invisionbyte.net/index.php?autocom=downloads&showfile=45
Pretty sure IPB3 does this now.
It does so on this board.
As stated, IPB3 does this out of the box
Is it optional though?
Not for PMs. Only optional for notifications for topics/posts.
If it's not possible to disable sending the pm text with the notification email then we would be very unlikely to ever want to upgrade to IPB 3.0
Send me a PM with text. I have temporarily disabled the one switch in my control panel. PMs are now like topics.
I did a test with Andy and it appears there is no way to turn off just the contents from a PM notification.
Thank you, Andy.
No problem :)
OK, thanks for the replies, it's nice to here the feature will be available in version 3.
Better if it can be disabled for security reasons and a member may never login to the board if they can just read the PMs in the emails...

Sure they could read all PMs without going on your board, but they couldn't send any. And besides, why exactly is that a problem anyway? I'm afraid I don't really understand the issue.
