Empty Junk Folder

I need to empty my super crowded junk folder from my pc because from the phone I can only do it one message at a time and it takes forever. Please the empty folder option. (+better filters for junk would be nice too)

        you currently have to select each individual mail on the spam folder to delete them. You need a feature that allows you to empty Spam box without having to select them individually kind of like you do in the trash folder

        Instead of only having delete option you can add to block or spam list

        Why does my wife have Empty Junk function but I don't, yet we have the same exact phone?? We also have the same installed version of Outlook??

        The SPAM folder needs an "Empty Spam"
        button/option inside the folder like
        the Trash folder and also a button/
        option in the listing of all folders, ala
        the Trash folder.
        Presently, you have to select items in the
        Spam folder; delete the items; go to the Trash
        folder; press the Empty Trash" button/option
        to permanently delete the items. Thanks.

        In the app, you have to select an email before the "Select All" option appears. If you accidentally open some of this garbage, you get massive amounts of spam almost immediately

        You used to be able to delete trash and spam through the app or go to the desk top version. Now I have to go to the computer to do it and once it's emptied it still shows on the app, I don't get it. Also there was a block sender option and a safe list option which are no longer available, everything new is not always better.

        An option to delete all messages from the spam folder, like in the trash folder in the outlook Android app

        A button to empty the spam folder. Not nightlight and move them to Delete folder. So many extra steps this way.

        I need a button to empty the spam folder in one go like in the trash folder instead of having to select each one. they are in spam because we don't need them so just empty them in one go.

        I will add my voice to the money that are asking for a delete all option for the spam folder in Outlook for Android. However it does seem as though this thread is falling on deaf eyes.
