    Open IE>Tools>Internet Options> Privacy

    in the bottom half you should find the Popup-Blocker. Cick on the Settings button..
    and add the site you want to be "Excluded" by the Pop-up Blocker.

    The OP asked about a GPO to set this option for distribution to multiple users. So, to clarify:

    If the client has up-to-date IE7 administrative templates installed, the following GPO will allow them to achieve this:

    User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer > Pop-up allow list

    If not, the administrative templates can be downloaded from

    Run & install, then go into Group Policy, import these into the User Configuration by right clicking on Administrative Templates, navigate to %systemdrive%\Program Files\Microsoft Group Policy and import the inetres.adm. You should then be able to configure the GPO above.
