Print Notification - How to turn off?

We have an application that prints aprox. 200 sheets a day.  The printing notification is rather annoying, as the printer is two feet from the local console.  Is there any way to turn print notification off for a machine, user or specific application?

Also, as an aside, is there any way to stop these print jobs from being logged in the system log?

Thanks!

The quick and dirty way is to turn off (or stop) the messenger service, the client won't get any messages this way anymore. Of course this will prevent hm to get any other messages sent this way (like net send commands).
On the server side, I don't think there is a way to prevent logging of print jobs...

Do you print through Netware, a shared printer or to a local port.

This should help:
Windows NT 4.0
--------------
 
1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Printers.
2. From the File menu, click Server Properties.
3. On the Advance tab, click "Notify when Remote Documents are Printed" so that it is not selected.
4. Stop and restart the Spooler service from the Services portion of Control Panel so the new setting will take effect.
 
NOTE: Under Windows NT versions 3.51 and 4.0, if the print notification is turned off and the printer is directly connected by means of a parallel or serial cable, error messages will appear on the server. While the error is displayed, printing will not resume to the printer, even if the cause of the error is cleared from the printer. Someone must log on to the server
and click Retry or Cancel in the Error Message dialog box. This does not effect network-connected printers.
