Your mailbox is over its size limit - Disable Exchange 2000 Server auto message

Was hoping that anyone could provide me with some clarity on the following:

If a quota is set in the 'Prohibit Send at (KB):' eg  100000 KB, Exchange 2000 sends an email out if the quota is exceeded. Is it possible to NOT send out the automated message? We do want to set the limit, but do NOT want to send out the message? Any registry changes maybe?

I have set limit 'Prohibit send at (KB):' to 10000. This is done at policy level. The 'Issue warning at....' is not ticked. The message I still receive is below:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Your mailbox has exceeded one or more size limits set by your administrator.
Your mailbox size is 11562 KB.
Mailbox size limits:
        You cannot send mail when your mailbox reaches 10000 KB.You may not be able to send or receive new mail until you reduce your mailbox size.
To make more space available, delete any items that you are no longer using or move them to your personal folder file (.pst).
Items in all of your mailbox folders including the Deleted Items and Sent Items folders count against your size limit.
You must empty the Deleted Items folder after deleting items or the space will not be freed.
See client Help for more information.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Is there a way to NOT send out this message but to set the quota to say 10000KB but to enforce the cap?

Reason for the request is that we have written  a small app that sends messages out to users depending on a number of rules and we do not want the user to receive 2 messages (one from Exchange and one from the app).

Your help is very much appreciated

Enforcing the limit enables the message - no work around.
If you don't want the message don't enforce the limit.

Exchange doesn't know and doesn't have the capability to be told that you have another mechanism for telling the users that they are over their limit - so it will send its own message.

They have only recently introduced a mechanism to change the message itself - albeit unsupported.
