Allow actions on searched items
If you do a search you have very limited group actions on the results unlike u searched items. There is no press and hold for multi select, no swipe actions either. I would like to search by say sender and then action, move folder delete etc.
Swiping left/right through the emails as well would be helpful.
Please make it so I can delete emails after a search for emails from the same sender. It would make it so much easier to keep my inbox uncluttered if I can delete emails after a search. I have considered deleting my account because you no longer have this feature.
If I search Walmart then should be able to select multiple emails and delete them

Cannot move searched emails after selecting into one folder, can only move individually which is time consuming.

I see you can select multiple emails to do bulk actions but it would help much more if you do that AFTER you have searched. I o my do this feature after I have searched and narrowed down my search to a certain topic or sender and then mass delete. This doesn’t seem to currently be an option
Implement capability to search for a specific sender and mark all of their emails as read. This will be a huge help to clean up an inbox which received many automated emails from a specific sender.
Be able to search and bulk select emails on mobile. Also to spam and unsubscribe and remove all those emails from inbox that is available onLine
I’m having a challenge that when I search an old email to reply , the earlier email conversation ( trailing email ) are not displaying or loading . It will be difficult as the receipt can see it as new email only .
Please enable an option that to load all the earlier email chat also also when we reply ( only when search an old email )

I get a LOT of email in multiple accts and don't always need to read certain ones. I can search for the ones I don't need, but I am unable to remove them from the search results, individually or en masse, instead I'm forced to tediously go thru potentially many many dozens or more messages in the main inbox instead of the search results and delete them individually.

Let us delete messages in the search results in Android, at least individually but optionally also ALL found messages
Come on Microsoft, this is such a basic feature I can’t believe that all these years later you guys have not created this. This is a complete and utter failure.
Searching by sender is no very efficient. The overall searching of old emails is slow and dense and inefficient.
There is a limitation for search function on iOS Outlook. It would be great if no limitation which means can search the email at the beginning.
There is no “select all” functionality after searching for items in the search box. I have to search and delete emails one by one , it’s quite painful, instead of being able to select multiple items. This would be useful to support managing and tidy up inboxes.
I’ve tried the suggestions of “long press on the round icon”- this does nothing and...
Swipe email to the left and adjust settings to delete instead of archive- this does nothing
I want to clean up my inbox and delete all old emails that show up in search results. When I search a ‘word’ and search results show up I want to be able to instantly delete any email no longer needed by swiping. Currently you have to click on each email then delete which I’ve put in the ‘too hard basket’
When I’m searching, I would like to be able to select multiple items and delete them. As it is now, I can’t even delete from searching without opening the email.

cannot search emails, then select them and delete. For example I cannot search say emails from a sender then select them all and delete. Each email in the search results have to be opened and deleted. I can do this in the Gmail app in IOS, but it is not possible in outlook.
The fact that this feature is not available keeps me from using outlook on my iPad.
Will this feature ever be supported?

Please create a option to delete the accumulated contacts from the search field at the bottom of the app. It’s stupid that there is no way to get rid of these contacts.
Why can’t I perform all the usual email actions in the search area that I can from Inbox. Like Print?

When I search for emails from a contact or by keyword and results are displayed, there is no option / function to delete all the emails in one go.
There does not seem to be any button to select all and then delete them.
Kindly provide this feature as it is very time consuming to delete the emails one by one.
I just noticed that others have requested this feature in 2015 but nothing has been done. Not surprised that Microsoft does not care about the users!

Rather then making the user leave the inbox page to search, had your design team ever considered simply dragging the inbox screen down up to activate the search field.
The majority of apple iphone windows function like this and it is for good reason.
Having to leave the inbox to then have to place your cursor in the search field is cumbersome. It would be so much more efficient.
