Select multiple emails after searching
I would like to be able to select multiple emails after searching for similar ones. I was surprised when I wasn’t able to do that.
After filtering out certain emails, allow to select one / some / all of those for further action — including delete, move to folder, label

i was so surprised to see this is still not available. This is very basic and must be available for efficient email maintenance.
I would like the ability to select multiple emails so I can move them at once to a single folder instead of moving them one at a time.

The “long press” on a message to display the checkboxes for multi message select is not intuitive - I had to search help for it. It would be great to expose this option in a button/link/checkbox instead (or in addition to)

I can't believe they still haven't fixed this!

Being able to select all the emails that match a given search is a pretty basic functionality and absolutely necessary for sorting and organizing one's inbox. I wish Outlook was a bit more powerful in terms of searches and rules—lagging behind other providers in that regard.

Absolutely need this feature!!! This is very basis of UX/UI with the most of value.
Deleting and sorting.
Brand new iPad pro. First thing I test is deleting multiple emails from the same user - WHY IS THIS NOT POSSIBLE? Not good enough...can't believe I have to go back to IOS mail for this one key feature. Absolutely shocking not to have this basic functionality.
Yes! Please fix this! I want to keep using this, but it’s a challenge not selecting multiple emails!

Include an edit button were more than one email can be selected to be moved to a folder or deleted.
In the default apple mail app I could search for emails and then move or delete them.
In the outlook mail iPhone app when I search all I can do is look at the emails.
Add a feature to select all, select individually or deselect all then when you’ve done that offer the options to move them or delete them.
Other forum comments suggest this has been solved but it hasn’t - cannot select multiple emails in a search results list.
On the filter mode, users are not able to select multiple emails and perform bulk actions (move, deletec flag, etc...). Suggestion for this feature to be developed for easier inbox management.
Yes, this can be vey annoying. The ability to select multiple search entries seems like a no brained that they should have included without having to be requested.

You can move one by one to other but if several mails arriv3 to your inbox those couldn't be moved to the OTHER.
So basically the request is to enable move multiple selected items into OTHER.

Ability to select multiple or select all when searched. For example.. we search the word facebook. There should be an option to select multiple emails/items on the search results. Then providing other options like delete, archive, move to folder, etc....

This would allow multiple actions to be done at once instead of having to open each individual email to perform the same action. Example, search for eg. ABCXYZ that finds 10 emails. Now, there is no way to eg. bulk delete all of them at once. You have to open 1 at a time to delete.
