              Good news! Select All is an option inside of Outlook for Android. To select more than one email, either long press on a message from your inbox, or touch on the circular avatar next to a message and watch it turn into a checkmark. You can select as many emails as you’d like. Then press the 3-dot icon at the top right to perform a bulk operation. If you’d like to select all, just go to the 3-dot icon right after you’ve selected at least one email.

                  You can now move emails to any folder you wish including the Spam folder, by simply choosing the “more options” icon within the message (3 dots) > tap move> choose the folder you would like to move the email to. You can also move multiple emails by selecting them from the inbox view, tap the 3 dot icon > tap move then choose the folder you would like to move to. For outlook.com accounts only, sending items to spam will be picked up as a signal by our reporting team and will lead to the sender being blocked. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out at Settings > Help & Feedback > Contact Support.

                      Hey there!

                      If you’re not enjoying the Focused Inbox feature, you can turn it off in your settings. By switching the option off within your settings, the toggle option on the top of your inbox will disappear and all your mails will appear chronologically across your inbox. If you have further questions, we have some talented people ready to assist at Settings > Help & Feedback > Contact Support.

                      Thank you again for your support, we look forward to hearing more of your ideas very soon.

                                      Hey!

                                      Thank you all for your patience! The ability to add and edit recurring events is now available for many account types, you can also edit or delete a single event or occurrence out of a series. If your email account supports creating events, you will be given the option to create them from your Outlook calendar on iOS/Android. If you are unsure whether or not your account supports recurring events on mobile platforms please contact your email provider or our in app support team.

                                      All the best
                                      The Outlook Mobile Team

                                    • Quiet Time

                                      Quiet time on the old version was very helpful, prevented me from having to put my device in either silent or airplane mode manually.
