People are trying to login to my email 100 times a day (minimum) -

I don't now if my e-mail and password is easy access for the internet. But I have 100+ login attempts daily on my e-mail. They type in the wrong password and further I have 2 factor authentication. 

My question is if I can set a limit on login attempts every hour or so?

Hi @PeterSHarder,

unfortunately, Microsoft doesn't offer a direct way for individual users to set specific login attempt limits on their personal Outlook or Microsoft accounts.

It is important that you have a long and complex password, and as you mentioned MFA enabled.
