Alert setup suppression

Is there a way to suppress the notification that an alert has been successfully setup? I'm setting up a large filesharing repository with > 20 document libraries, each with a unique (but often overlapping) set of users and alert recipients. Many of the recipients are executive-level and I don't want to bother them with 20+ setup confirmation emails. Any guesses?

I suppose that removing the SharePoint email address in central admin temporarily might do the trick, but I was hoping for something that could be accomplished through the front end. Any hope?

    Sorry if this is a stupid question... I'm a brand new user. I thought that the link you provided above was just for the trial version? The one we installed was downloaded from a e-commerce-type site using an account that SPS setup at purchase time. That was just like a week or maybe two ago. Are you saying I should I install a trial version over the full version? And why would the version on the e-commerce site, not be the latest one. A bit confused....

     The only thing I'm sure about is that the version we installed is 1.0.8239.1 (according to the file name) and the trial file is not named with a version so I don't know what it's version is (nothing in the setup process indicates it either).

    Just wanting to install the right thing...

    The latest version is 1.0.9110.4 and you can find your version by going to http://yoursite/_layouts/SPSolutions/AlertManager/productinfo.aspx.

    The trial installation is the full product but includes a 30 trial license. If you have your production license installed, it will take precedence and the installation will be fully licensed.
