    Is it at all possible with the help of some plugin or hack that whenever someone enters the username of admin and enters a wrong password.. an email is sent to me stating "one failed login attempt" or something like this?

    Regards

    yes it is possible.

    in pluggable.php in the wp-includes folder between lines 280 to 311, you can insert mail() functions or write logs to a text file. one of many possible solutions.
