You cannot mute group IMs yet, but it's an extremely popular feature request that might be added in the future.

 

However, there is a workaround; while it's not the most convenient, it may help:

  • Select Edit > Preferences > Communications and deselect the Include IM in Chat History checkbox.
  • Then, on your toolbar with your chat bar open (click Chat at the bottom of the Second Life window if it isn't), click History to show the Chat History window.

Note that this won't stop the group tabs in your IM window from flashing when new messages are received; it just hides all IMs, individual or group, from showing in your Chat History.

There is another workaround.  In your group IM window, click the Tear Off button next to the Close or X button to detach the selected window, then click X to close it.  You will not receive new group IMs until you next log in.

In fact, you don't even need to "Tear off" the IM to close it - just click its small X top right (it will be just below the larger X for the whole Communicate window).
