Exchange Online: Reply-All Storm Protection
Exchange Online is a cloud-based messaging platform from Microsoft that offers a secure and reliable communication platform for businesses across the globe. The platform is designed to help organizations streamline their messaging, collaboration, and communication processes. As part of its security measures, Exchange Online has introduced Reply-All Storm Protection, a feature that limits the number of recipients a user can send a message to and the number of messages a user can send in a given period of time. This feature helps protect businesses from potential spam and malicious emails that could be sent from a single user.

What is Reply-All Storm Protection?
Reply-All Storm Protection is a feature of Exchange Online that helps protect organizations from spam and malicious emails sent by a single user. The feature limits the number of recipients a user can send a message to and the number of messages a user can send in a given period of time. This helps to prevent users from replying to the same message multiple times or sending the same message to a large number of recipients.

How Does Reply-All Storm Protection Work?
Reply-All Storm Protection works by monitoring the number of recipients a user can send a message to and the number of messages a user can send in a given period of time. If a user exceeds the limits set by the organization, the feature will block the message and prevent it from being sent to the intended recipients. The feature also prevents users from replying to the same message multiple times in a given period of time.
