How can we improve Azure Diagnostics and Monitoring?

E-mail notifications for "Impossible travel to atypical locations" reporting

E-mail notifications for "Impossible travel to atypical locations" reporting. Presently admins need to watch this portal screen all day/night to see if there are new entries. It would be much better to see an e-mail notification about it.

    It boggles my mind, having been an admin for over 21 years with Exchange (5.5 to be exact) that you would have to pay for a subscription just to get alerts. We have never had any enterprise or even small cheap program make us pay to receive something as essential as alerts. These are risky events that need to be addressed right away. In our case, when a person's account was compromised by the country Nigeria, within the hour of them accessing their account, they were sending thousands of emails internally to our users about taking a nanny position (ugh). Since it came from someone internally, people trusted it and emailed the Nigerian scammers and then the Nigerian scammers sent emails asking them for personal information to apply for the nanny position. If we caught this right away with an alert, the situation would have been avoided completely.

    Email notifications are essential for responding to these risk events promptly and the option to configure this should be available.

    Monitoring the website 24/7 is not a option and can only lead to delay in detecting malicious activity.

    MS have done all the heavy lifting - can't think why they didn't put in an email feature by default ?
