It's another threshold that may be useful for sites that have some users
with very large quotas but many users with much smaller quotas.  So you
can have most users get warned at 10% left, but some users (with, say, 1GB
quotas) get warned only when they have 10MB left:

            /* Warn if the following possibilities occur:
             * - quotawarnkb not set + quotawarn hit
             * - quotawarnkb set larger than mailbox + quotawarn hit
             * - quotawarnkb set + hit + quotawarn hit
