Hello Karl, to stop Group IMs appearing in Chat History, see Can I mute group IMs? See also Video Tutorial Moderate group voice & text chat

Is there a mean to mute temporarly a group ?

Personally I either close the Group Chat window by using Tear Off Tab Button to seperate it from the Communicate window (the Group Chat window can be re-opened via Communicate > Groups > IM/Call) or I Go into Busy mode

Hope this helps

If you close the group IM window it will stay closed until you either A) open it yourself on purpose or B) relog. So when you get the first IM, close the window and you won't see more IMs from that group.

Except - it doesn't always work .

Works better for very busy groups, because it seems if the group is very quiet for a while then a new message will pop up the notice again.

lol, typical.  Through i've never used it I've seen the "When 'receive group notices' is disabled, disable group chat as well' button... figured between muting the notices and chat that meant the group was effectively muted - arg too bad it doesn't work like that.

Also add your comments and vote on this pJIRA New Feature request Allow group IMs to be muted

As Q Linden says on his recent Blog post Taking technical feedback from Residents

How the bug report is handled

After submitting an issue, you might want to point it out to some friends. People can vote for issues they care about. Linden Lab uses vote count to help point out the issues we should pay the most attention to. Vote count is not the only measure, of course, but all things being equal, an issue with more votes will get attention sooner.

pJIRA is a tool for residents to file new feature requests as well as bug reports (The "P" stands for Public.) An overview and common questions about pJIRA can be found in the Creating bug reports and feature requests in the Public Issue Tracker

How do I log in to the Tracker?

Nope, you can say no to group notices by going to that groups profile, but IMs will still get though... only way to stop them is by going into 'busy' mode.  There is a viewer called Emerald that will allow you the option of muting both notices and IMs but an important caution... this viewer isn't supported by LL. If this is the route you want to go just do an internet search on 'Emerald viewer' and you'll find it.

If you are using a TPV like Phoenix you can actually mute a Group if you want. I didnt know that myself until someone hear pointed me in the direction of the 'Preference' menu. In 'Preference' go to the 'Phoenix' tab, Then go to the 'chat' tab. Oh but first in the Group info you untick the checkbox that says 'receive group notices'. Now back to where I was, in the 'chat' tab, check the box that says 'When receive group notice is disabled, disable group chat as well,. Simple...also you have the option to mute all Group chat. All this is possible in Phoenix, I have no idea about other viewers.

The bad thing is that Emerald don't stop group Ims, it just prevent to open the group window, but ims appear on your screen.

Don't worry about what people think, they don't do it very often.
