Resolved
I tested what happends when I enter a wrong password n-times
after a while the message appears .. too many login failures.. retry later
 
but.. then I want to log in via the webmail on an other account with correct password, but I am not allowed to log in on an other account.
 
And I can't find the settings for this behaviour in de admin panel @  Abuse detection.

When trying to login via the web interface and getting blocked due to wrong username/password SmarterMail will block the IP address and not the account.  That is why you were not able to login to a different account.  The settings for this is handle in the webconfig file under the MRS folder.  The lines you will need to change if you are planning on modifying this are below.
 
    <add key="Login.BruteForceDetection.TriesBeforeBlock" value="10" />
    <add key="Login.BruteForceDetection.BlockTime" value="5" />
