delete all button
delete a large quantity of emails instead of having to do so individually. save so much time.
Thank you for using Outlook Mobile and sharing your ideas with us. We really appreciate your support.
There are a few quick and easy way to delete emails from the Outlook app.
1. Delete button in reading view.
Simply tap on the “trash” icon on the upper right corner of the screen to delete the email that’s currently open.
2. Swipe to delete.
Swipe the email to the left. By default, this will archive the email. However, you can customize Swipe Options in the Settings and change the action to Delete.
3. Bulk delete.
This is very useful when you want to delete multiple emails at once. 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. 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

difficulty deleting bulk msg
Sam Allen commented
This is apparently available in ios but not android.
Alan Helig commented
This should be available in the search function where all the emails to delete are together
delete search results

I use to be able to hit a button and delete 10-15 emails at a time. Now, I have to swipe or click each one individually. It takes longer to go through my unwanted emails. I use to tell my Significant Other that I preferred Outlook over Gmail for that reason

Based on search result, all messages can be deleted

Give us the option to bulk delete. Allow us to search for one particular sender and delete, or stop making us click on every single individual email to delete it. Google has this option on desktop, WHY is it so impossible to ask for in an app form?

its too hard to search and delete. half my emails now end up going staight to junk while i am getting emails about ***. sick of spam going into the incorrect place.

you have to delete one at a time, takes forever, a box to delete all in each folder, junk, inbox, yeah

how hard is it to delete after search???.one of the most important thing and yet not available.
just allow us to delete multiple emails after we search.
Rose Addis commented
only works with emails that are visable on the screen. minimize your window to delete more at once. Really bizarre hack...

a delete all button not this one by one
Lucy Gedling commented
really annoying when you have spent 20 mins selecting a ton of emails to delete and then accidently brush tap in the wrong place and have to start again
Derek Lee commented
Does not work. Can delete no more than about 5 emails at a time
Trevor Cuttriss commented
this does not work if you have sorted the emails by sender. if I get a lot of emails from one provider, I want to select just those ones to delete by doing a search, and then bulk delete.
Renée A. La Forest commented
Select all is not enough! add select all from sender and the option to "do this from now on"

If I search emails with any keyword, select multiple emails option is not available. In absence of this, I couldn't move or delete the bulk emails.
