It is that despite that the limit for your users is high. It looks like that the 'Warning threshold' is not.

Ideally, if you are controlling the sizes with a script, you should control the warning threshold with a script as well.

The example for changing the warning limit for just one user is as follow:

Set-Mailbox "John Smith" -IssueWarningQuota 2GB -UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults: $False

Maybe that is the only user who has exceed the current warning limit.

If you want to review the warning limit for all your users and then visualize which ones are incorrect you can use:

Get-Mailbox | Select Name,IssueWarningQuota

I agree with schnell. It's the warning limit. The reason some users would get the message and not others is because the ones getting the message have current usage that is close to the warning limit set on their mailboxes. When you change the upper limit on mailboxes, you also have to change the warning limit setting at the same time.
