Maybe I am the only one who did not find the option how to prevent Sametime chat windows from popping up for every incoming message in Notes 8.0.1 (resp. Sametime 8.0). I think this option was somewhere else in Notes 8.0 (resp. Sametime 7.5.1).

Anyway, this is how to do it:

Go to "File -> Preferences -> Sametime -> Notifications"
Click on "One-on-one chat"
Uncheck "Bring chat window to front"

    Ah, THANKS! This was so annoying when you tried to write an email and someone kept pinging you with unimportant messages...

    Even if I already uncheck the "Bring chat window to front" the chat window still pops out. Any help?

    It is not a NOTES.INI setting but somewhere hidden in the Eclipse preferences. Sorry, but currently not aware of the exact setting.

    I was just working with someone who changed the settings to stop window coming to front... and it didn't fix it. We reverted back to the defaults, unchecked the box, restarted and then it worked. Maybe something to try ...
