SharePoint 2010: Site Collection Administrator does not receive storage quota alerts

To help manage site and server resources, an administrator of the local server computer can specify quotas that are used to limit the amount of storage available on a site and the number of users that are added to a site collection. These quotas help to ensure that one site cannot deplete so many resources that other sites can no longer function.

The server administrator can use locks to stop sites from exceeding the storage quota limits, and to block all users from accessing a site if necessary.
A user is a SharePoint Site Collection Administrator. The Site Collection reaches its quota, and has passed the warning limit. However, the user does not receive a warning email message. 

Probable causes:
This issue occurs because the warning email message only goes to the Site Owner.

To resolve this issue, validate that the user is not the Site Owner. To do this, follow these steps: 
1)      Log on to any server of the farm. 
2)      Open Central Administration. 
3)      Application Management, and then
4)      Click View All Site Collections.  
5)      Find the site in question.  
6)   Notice the "Primary administrator." 

The primary site collection administrator will be the user who receives quota alerts. If the customer has to change this, we can run the following cmdlet:

stsadm -o siteOwner -url <Site Collection> -ownerLogin <Domain\Alias>
