Spooler net message

Is there a way that I can disable the spooler from a printer server from sending messages to the user when the print job is completed.

Run NET STOP SPOOLER and NET SEND commands in a batch file. For more info:

I do not want to stop the spooler service, I just want to stop sending messages to users when a job is completed.

Under Windows NT 3.5x and 4.0, it is possible to disable the Printing Notification network dialog boxes sent by the spooler on a print server when a print job has been completed, there is an error, or a job has been deleted.
 
Also note that this setting applies globally to all the printers on a particular print server. It is not possible to set this
option on a per-printer basis.
 
Use the following steps to disable Printing Notification network dialog boxes:
 
NOTE: This option must be performed on the server that is sending the pop-up. The only way to disable a pop-up on a client is to disable the messenger service on the client. Disabling the pop-up from the server will affect all clients.
 
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.
