You can set the templates directory to anything in plugin.json, I think it defaults to just templates if you don't specify.
Them you match the path from views, so it would be templates/emails where you put them.
Regardless of which email plugin is used, is there a simple way to choose which emails go out to users?
Like if I ONLY want emails to go out for a couple things (like private message notification, password reset), can I do that somehow?
@zenkamal Not yet, no. The email system sends out three kinds of emails:
The presentation of content in each is determined by the template in the theme, so it's actually up to the theme to decide what to show (out of the data sent in each email).
