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

    Also when I put something into spam I want Outlook app to automatically un-assign me from the spammer list so I don't have to manually do it.

    It's frustrating to have to scroll and delete individual emails. Would like option to delete by day, week or All

    I am absolutely frustrated that I have tried to get help for two weeks! I can not delete emails, I spend hours clearing out my inbox. Only to have them return and receive an email that I am at maximum storage capacity!!

    Should be able to filter A to Z or Z to A and then be able to delete multiple email messages from the same sender at once.

    This would make using your service so much easier. I remember when AOL first came out and had the delete all button, it made it sooo much easier for working people trying to get thru the 100's they got a day as well as anyone else a home maker or or a stay at home mom or dad.
