Description

You should receive an email for every private message, with the text in the email, and there should be a reply link in the private message
*Optionally.* There must be a way to turn this off.

Yes, I think we should have a "settings" section for users, where they can make changes like this.

Minimally, a link at the bottom of the email to stop sending these.
s/Minimally/Additionally/. Definitely a requirement. Either it turns them off automatically or links you to the settings page.
Depends on: 681935
This depends on having settings, so 9-13 isn't really feasible.

You can put the preference "send emails for private messages" on the profile page for now. But not sending emails defeats the purpose of private messages. When you want to contact a one-off contributor, the chances for him/her to see the PM are very low without an email notification. Please re-target for some time this quarter.

Could you please give this top priority now that bug 681935 is fixed? I think this is worth delaying other projects if that is necessary.

What copy should it?
For the user preference it's currently: 
Send emails for private messages

The email subject:
You have a new private message from [{sender}]

The email body:
{{ sender }} sent you the following message:{% endblocktrans %}
{{ message|safe }}

https://{{ host }}{{ url }}
