I've seen several posts asking this question and I finally found an easy solution. Messaging comes from the default group Human Resources/Employee so either remove the user from that group or duplicate that group and make an 'Employee-NoMessaging' group if you are using HR for something, removing the messaging menu.

This new support forum sucks, by the way

Actually, just found a better solution here - http://help.openerp.com/question/953/how-to-disable-menus-for-specific-users/
