Just to clarify, the idea was to only send out daily reports when there 
was a problem.  Nominally, no report would be sent.

There should be no reason to ignore them, other than "that can wait". 
When such a decision is made, it may help to change the threshold or 
schedule a reminder for some time in the future.  The daily or weekly nag 
was meant to be that reminder.

P.S.  It is easy to create and test a full disk condition.
$ dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/test-file bs=1048576 count=1024
will write a file of 1024*1MB=1GB in size.  Tweak the parameters or copy 
the file as needed.
