Default Suspicious activity on email account

I've had a message from MS saying that there has been suspicious activity on my email account.

I have since secured the account by changing the password and activating the 2-step verification.

What I want to know is did they actually get into my account?

I read the activity log and it says "successful sync".

Quote:
ProtocolSMTP
IP: 5.190.168.162
Account alias:
xxxxx@hxxx.com
TimeYesterday 21:09
Approximate location: Iran
Type: Successful sync
You've secured your account since this activity occurred.
But when I try to find out what this means, I see a lot of people on the internet asking the same thing and nobody really answering.

Does anyone on here know??

I don't know why they just don't say in the activity log - successful login instead of automatic sync and successful sync. I mean - for instances where I've logged in, it says, successful sign-in.....

Are you sure this email was from MS, but not from just spammers/scams? I don't think MS sends such a strange emails.

Yes definitely from MS. I was worried about that at first too. They emailed me and also sent me a text to my phone - which I was thinking this is a ploy to get me to access my account from my phone - which I never do.

Anyway, I logged into my account from my PC and in your hotmail account you can check recent activity on your email account - and under there, it showed various attempts on my account including the bit I quoted above. That bit wasn't in the email, you have to look under your recent activity in your actual account to see that.
