I use the Horde Webmail 4 system on the Linux server - and I've not seen a spot where you can set it to receive IMAP alerts or anything?
When the user is fully maxed at their quote and they try to send a message, they do get an error that they are over their quota at that point, however.
But, the idea is to set it so they are at least informed that they are getting close to their quota - before they hit it. Because once they hit it, their mail is rejected - which means they are losing out on incoming e-mails.
I set the quota inclusive setting to 'true' for now - so hopefully that will help.
