It is done this way because quota usage percentages can easily stay the
same by regular usage.  A user gets some mail, deletes some mail.  The
usage percentage won't change much.

If you set a threshold at which the quota warning is sent, and the
user's regular usage keeps hitting above and below this area, the user
will receive many warnings.

What you really mean to do is adjust how often the user can receive a
warning.  You can find this hardcoded setting in vdelivermail.c around
line 1150 in the deliver_quota_warning function.
