Empathy sends unnecessary notifications to the indicator applet

Bug Description

Binary package hint: empathy

I have an IRC account setup with empathy, as well as Google Talk. Everytime I enable chat, the envelope turns green with a message from the NickServ telling me I have been identified (it's Freenode).

So the problem is that everytime I want to enable chat, I have to open and dismiss that message to clear the indicator so that when a relevant message comes through, I'll know about it.

I think it should be possible to tell Empathy to ignore messages / chats from certain channels / people / bots etc. Either at a user level, or internally. As it stands, the indicator is made redundant from startup (until I clear it).

Thanks for taking time to report this bug. I have opened an upstream empathy task (I have altered it to the notification area icon as issue because they support notification area).
