Resolution If a file has been shared to a user via the "Share with People" option:
  1. Recipients receive a Chatter message on their My Messages page on the Chatter tab.
  2. The user may also receive an email notification regarding the new Chatter Message.

If a user does not want to receive email notifications for shared files they may disable their "Sends me a message" preference. See Navigate to Chatter Email Settings for instructions on locating the preference.
Note: If you will disable "Send me a message" for chatter file then you would not be able to receive any email notification if some send you any message.
