To configure e-mail notifications:            

On the E-mail Message tab, set the following options:               To notify administrators when a threshold is reached, select the Send e-mail to the following administrators check box, and then enter the names of the administrative accounts that will receive the notifications. Use the format account@domain, and use semicolons to separate multiple accounts.  

Can you remove yourself here?

 To send e-mail to the person who saved the file that reached the quota threshold, select the Send e-mail to the user who exceeded the threshold check box.

 To configure the message, edit the default subject line and message body  that are provided. The text that is in brackets inserts variable  information about the quota event that caused the notification. For  example, the [Source Io Owner] variable inserts the  name of the user who saved the file that reached the quota threshold. To  insert additional variables in the text, click Insert Variable.

 To configure additional headers (including From, Cc, Bcc, and Reply-to), click Additional E-mail Headers.
