eM Client contact's pop up is EXTREMLY annoying, how do I disable?

When I have eM Client open I constantly see contact popups at the bottom right corner of my screen. These contacts are people in my email contact list, and I honestly don’t know anything about contacts, contacts list or why this is enabled. All I know its very annoying to contactly see random contacts status such as “Away” every few minutes pop up.

How do I disable?

What you are seeing is the change in status of Chat contacts.

To hide the tab, right-click on Chat and unselect it from the list.

If you want to disable Chat completely, go to Menu > Tools > Accounts. On the General tab for your account, scroll down to the bottom, and unselect XMPP
