Try a script of quota warning like this:

cat << EOF | /usr/lib/dovecot/deliver -d "$USER" -c
From: postmaster at domain.com
Subject: Quota warning $PERCENT% full

Where /usr/local/etc/dovecot-nowarning.conf is a equal dovecot.conf
without quota check.

With this, the users have the quota warning also with quota full, with
no problems.
