My OS is win 7 Prof 64 bit and I have the MSN email, the free account, for many years.  The email is read using Outlook 2007.  The emails used to come into my Inbox without any problems.  but today I got a message that there were too many invalid login attempts and asking me to try again sometime later.  The only configuration I did was to set the send/receive to every 5 minutes.  is this a reason, or is someone trying to hack into my account.  Or how do I resolve this.  Thank u.
