This is a simple trick that hides the pm text in email notifications.
This was requested on the SMF site by a member, and was originally posted by: shadow82x

../Themes/default/languages/PersonalMessage.english.php

Code (Find) Select
$txt['pm_email'] = 'You have just been sent a personal message by SENDER on ' . $context['forum_name'] . '.' . "\n\n" . 'IMPORTANT: Remember, this is just a notification. Please do not reply to this email.' . "\n\n" . 'The message they sent you was:' . "\n\n" . 'MESSAGE';

Code (Replace with) Select
$txt['pm_email'] = 'You have just been sent a personal message by SENDER on ' . $context['forum_name'] . '.' . "\n\n" . 'IMPORTANT: Remember, this is just a notification. Please do not reply to this email.' . "\n\n" . 'Instead, please visit the forum at ' . $GLOBALS['scripturl'] . '?action=pm to read your message.';




For those people who wanted this as a mod, here it is!
I have approval to post this here, since the only reason it was not approved for the Mod site, was due to being so small a mod.

Is this the #1 most requested feature for all versions of SMF during the last 10 years?

What's the most requested feature during the last 10 years that SMF still doesn't have? I'm just curious. Is there a ranked list of top requested features?

Arantor

Last 10 years? You mean before SMF was even released...?

There isn't a formal list. The most popular in recent times is for better mobile support. Other than that, most of the requested things fall into broad categories like 'clan system' and 'ranking system' (for which everyone has a different definition) or calendar tweaks which only apply to a small subset of users anyway.

That would be a question best posted in Chit Chat, not in topic for something else. ;)

badon

Right, I'm just making a backwards point that I think this ought to be a feature of SMF, especially since it is already a feature for topic reply notifications. In any case, the mod is easy enough to do manually, and it should be pretty easy to eventually add as a new feature too.

badon

Another thing worth mentioning is that email notifications circumvent HTTPS, so they're kind of important from a security perspective. More info: Does SMF 2.0.2 support SSL/HTTPS?.

Arantor

When you figure out how to implement secure email, let everyone (including the NSA) know. In any case, SSL on forums is almost never about implementing it for protecting the content but about protecting the user's data.

In any case from a security perspective there are many, many more important things to do first.
