please provide me a simple bash script which will check the user quota, if it exceeds more then 250mb, then it will trigger an email to user accounts --> webadmin, aa12erp and aa13nbc

$ sudo -u penn quota
Disk quotas for user penn (uid 1001734):
     Filesystem  blocks   quota   limit   grace   files   quota   limit   grace
/dev/01
                  45800  200000 3000000              25       0       0


]$ uname -a
Linux test012.6.9-89.0.23. #1 SMP Fri Mar 5 18:01:22 EST 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Name it for example: check_quota.sh, add +x permission, and run: check_quota.sh user_name (for example: check_quota.sh penn).
#!/bin/sh

USER=$1
LIMIT=250000

Q=`sudo -u ${USER} quota | tail -n1 | awk '{print $2}'`
if [ "${Q}" -gt "${LIMIT}" ]; then
   echo "User: ${USER}; quota exceeded" | mailx -s "quota exceeded" webadmin aa12erp aa13nbc
fi
