Operations on search result
Should exist. The same ones you can do in the standard view: move, delete, select, ...
Also, allow to multi select messages for action

someone requested this 5 years ago and you still haven't done it?! Doesn't give me any confidence in your "request a feature"

when searching for emails from a particular sender, there still is no way to delete emails from the search. All you can do is view them. I could clean up my inbox much faster if i could search and then delete them all at once. This used to be a feature. Maybe I cant do it anymore because I use my phone vs a PC. So, maybe im suggesting that you make this feature available on mobile devices. Please and thank you.

when I search for a specific email and want to delete the emails that appear as the search results. there is no option to do so
Anita Karlberg commented
and even, if I search for a certain mailadress, why can't I erase it on the search side.
why can I not move an email using a search feature? I am currently using an Android tablet but I know this feature exists in the iOS version of the Outlook app?

When you search for an email and you get the list of results that correspond to your search if you want to delete, flag or move emails from those results you need to open the email and do it one by one. You cannot do a multiple selection from the list of search results and delete them like you can do in the inbox which is totaly illogical to me since you have that functionality in the inbox. Very frustrating deleting emails one by one and have to resort to my PC for doing this.
I do a search & get results. I see old email ... BUT I can't get Rid of them. Delete beside list, delete in top bar, Open individual email & click Delete... ALL COME BACK!!!!!??? GRRR! Do Something about this, please!!!

I can search for messages on the mobile app and I do get a list of messages in the search results, but there's no way to select them or move them to another folder. I'd like to be able to long press on some of the messages to select multiple messages and then have the ability to move them to another folder, just like we can do on a regular list of messages in the inbox or a folder. There's just no way to do that on the search results.

it's extremely time consuming to select each one to delete.

Search results can't be selected and deleted in Android version (Galaxy S10). Multi-Select doesn't come up on long press of results item. Need a way to Search Inbox for Sender='*GOOGLE*', Press "Select All", Press "Delete".
Van Nguyen Quang commented
Please at least allow bulk delete search results.

after a keyword serach it shows emails matched the keyword. it is only to view those emails instead of selecting emails and then to delete it

when you search for items in your mailbox it returns a number of results, however, it doesn't allow you to delete items from the search result and that's really annoying.
for example you might want to search for a string and delete all matching results.
its easy to do this in the full Outlook client

after searching emails using an email Id, when we select any particular email, the email doesn't open only. then what is the point of using search tool?
David Abramsky commented
With Outlook *desktop*, I often use "search" to clean out messages from a particular sender. But I don't see a way to select and delete msgs from a search results list using the Android app.
when I am cleaning my inbox I would like to search for emails from a sender and delete them from the search result list, either by side swiping or press and hold to select. The current way is to open each email from the search results delete one at time.

When I search to find ALL emails from a sender there should be a delete option given so you can delete a series of emails from that sender all at once without having to go back into the inbox and find each individual email or open each email to delete it. if I can pull them all up with the search feature make it so I can then press and hold to select and the choose to delete the selected messages all at once while in the search application.

It would be really convenient to have an option which allows us to select multiple emails from the search results and perform bulk actions such as Delete. Outlook platform as a whole misses out on this feature.
Vipul Chavda commented
After searching emails matching a certain criteria, I am not able to select all the matching emails, to take action on them as a whole - like deleting all of them.
Please fix this
