Hi there,

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
