Hi there,

Thank you for using Outlook Mobile and sharing your ideas with us. We really appreciate your support.

It is currently already possible to perform bulk action in the app. To do this, long press on an email until a checkmark appears at the left of it. Once you’ve selected multiple emails, you’ll then be able to perform the following actions: deleting, marking as read, archiving. A “Select All” option will also appear in the top right corner.

Having trouble finding the feature? Let us know through the Help section of the app in the Settings. (Settings > Help and Feedback > Contact Support). We’re here to help.

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

All the best

The Outlook Mobile Team

    When I bulk delete emails in my Outlook phone app, will it delete them as well from my Inbox in the Outlook program on my laptop?? This would not be the outcome I would want.
    Thanks for your reply.

    This method does not work in Outlook desktop. We need a solution that we can have the ability to bulk delete selective email.

    No you can not already do this, what i feel we are asking for is the ability to delete all from a specific sender in other words, we should be able to either check a specific sender in inbox or search then be able to check all, not one at a time and either delete, move to folder or mark spam, thats the bulk we are speaking of, same sender bulk remove

    Unfortunately you didn't understood the request.
    Request was for: search for different topic/subject and then delete all the results at once.

    The issue was not deleting bulk emails but the inability to delete old emails, whether individually or in bulk.

    It is ridiculous!

    Funny Thing is I have version 3.0.73 (322) and it does not have this section as described in this post:

    "Having trouble finding the feature? Let us know through the Help section of the app in the Settings. (Settings > Help and Feedback > Contact Support). We’re here to help."

    I think that maybe you have missed one specific part of our want list. We want to be able to do this on a SEARCH list! We can do it on the standard list but once you do a search and get the results you can not do the press 5 seconds and use the hamburger menu.
    Just do a SEARCH for some term or specific email address and the let the results appear (Maybe mine just never finishes the search, wheel around X is still spinning).

    Please create something that enables the user to delete between one email and the entire inbox

    it will kind of do this but only the ones showing on the screen. one screen at a time takes forever when I get hundreds of junk emails flooding in every day. used to have this feature, not sure why the opposite of progress is happening here.
