Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

That setting is set on the print server where the queue is and not at the local workstation. On the print server’s printers list, look at server properties from the file menu. There is a bot for alerting in there.

    I was going to suggest disabling the Windows Messenger Service via Group Policy as that's the default in Windows XP SP2 and the recommended best practise but, telling the queue not to alert is certainly a more direct way to solve your problem.
